Young Hispanics

Young Latinos are ready to take charge and change the story about Hispanics in America. They're ready to play a more prominent role in how our community influences policy makers, corporate leaders, and the rest of the United States.

Young Hispanics are expressing themselves with a new attitude and sense of purpose. And most importantly, they want results: Less talking, more doing! Young Hispanics in America are eager to lead new types of conversations about their local community to build national credibility. Their socially conscious thinking and their ability to keep conversations moving across multiple channels and platforms via social media allows them to cultivate fresh perspectives and an influential voice.
“I am tired of the old guard’s attitude.  While I respect the doors they have opened for my generation, they must let go of their anger and use that energy by sharing their wisdom to inspire and guide us.  They don’t understand the new generation of Latinos and the challenges that we face.   Their voices bring us down and that must change to give our generation hope.”
--Post event reaction from a young Latina that attended the Orange County Town Hall
The generational differences in thought have frustrated younger Hispanics (the Gen Y regime) whose needs and thought-process are radically different than their parents and those who lead their local communities. Young Hispanics are eager to share their points of view and become more knowledgeable about their economic influence that includes (but not limited to):

  • How the job market requires the intellectual capital of young Hispanics so that their employers can be more innovative and build new relationships
How brands have heavily invested in how they market/communicate to young Hispanics
How young Hispanics have changed the social media footprint
  • How Fortune 500's require a different business model to earn and sustain the share of mind/share of wallet of young Hispanics
  • How companies recruit and retain the talent of young Hispanics

2012 Hispanic Voice is calling for young Hispanics to get involved in this non-partisan initiative.   We are offering internship programs for all university students that are interested in serving as volunteers.  Your participation efforts can include (but are not limited to):
