Overview

Self-reported by organization

LULAC is the largest and oldest civil rights volunteer-based
organization. LULAC’s work changes Latino lives and builds Latino communities.
We are 135,000 passionate volunteers, staff and partners, working through a
nationwide network of grassroots councils to help Latinos of all generations to
help themselves.

LULAC programs tackle the
most important issues for Latinos, meeting critical needs of the moment and the
future.  Implemented through councils and
education and technology centers around the country, LULAC empowers Latinos
with fundamental life skills, such as computer and financial literacy or
healthy living.  We also strengthen
communities with leadership training, scholarships and civic engagement
campaigns.

LULAC’s 900 grassroots
councils are active in 35 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.
Each council elects its own leadership and sets its own priorities. The local
councils also provide guidance, direction and elected leaders to the LULAC
national office. This grassroots approach ensures that LULAC reflects the
diversity of the Latino American community and shapes its future.

LULAC’s technology,
educational and job centers open doors to new worlds. In 56 tech centers around
the country, LULAC volunteers, staff and partners bring computer training and
Internet access to 150,000 underserved Latinos each year. LULAC’s 14 education
centers annually help 11,000 young Latinos graduate from high school and pursue
further educational opportunities. The LULAC
Corporate Alliance, an advisory board of Fortune 500 companies, fosters
stronger partnerships between Corporate America and the Hispanic community.
