Latinx Emerging Leaders in Prevention Fellowship

The Latino/a Emerging Leaders Fellowship was created in collaboration between CADCA (Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America) and the National Hispanic/Latino Prevention Technology Transfer Center (NHL-PTTC).

This fellowship will provide leadership development and capacity building training for emerging leaders within the field of substance misuse prevention and community development. 

The Latino/a Emerging Leaders Fellowship supports bilingual and multilingual Spanish and Portuguese speaking emerging leaders and community change agents who are actively working to address substance use and misuse. The fellowship will select five inaugural community-minded Fellows for a nine-month program designed to build the capacity to navigate and thrive in the constantly shifting field of prevention. 

The Emerging Leaders Fellowship program will take a cross-disciplinary approach and will build competency in four areas: partnership and coalition building, leadership development for social change, implementation and adaptation of evidence informed strategies and systems thinking. Through this program, our Fellows will also have the opportunity to learn from and interact with national experts and community leaders from across the U.S. in the prevention and public health field.  

The program will do a deep dive into prevention science and how principles of equity and inclusion have enhanced prevention services and interventions in public health. Participants will also complete a capstone project and work toward achieving a Prevention Specialist Certification.
