MANO PROJECT

The core purpose for the MANO Project (My Access to Network Opportunities) is to connect, build and develop thoughtful Latino leaders who share a passion for serving and strengthening their communities. We want to help build leadership capacity among Latino communities and the nation as a whole. We build trusting relationships with organizations and federal agencies to provide professional development and training opportunities for Latino/a college students and graduates.

HAF internship and fellowship programs offer unique work experiences and competitive packages for candidates. Programs provide extensive training, mentoring and professional development support to ensure that students have the tools, tips and knowledge to be outstanding contributors, navigate challenges and make the most of their experience. Through site visits, webinars, mentorship connections and links to the HAF network, participants are strongly positioned for success and high impact.

All programs are paid and many offer transportation stipends, free on-site housing or housing stipends.
