Entravision Communications Corporation Marks Fourth Year Of Supporting The Latino Leadership Initiative At The Center For Public Leadership At Harvard Kennedy School

SANTA MONICA, Calif. and CAMBRIDGE, Mass., June 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Entravision Communications Corporation (NYSE: EVC), a diversified Spanish-language media company, today announced that it is pleased to support this year's Latino Leadership Initiative (LLI) at the Center for Public Leadership (CPL) at Harvard Kennedy School.  Launched in 2010 with the support of Entravision Chairman, Walter F. Ulloa, LLI is a week-long program that prepares rising college seniors for the opportunities and challenges they will face in the coming decades.

On Sunday, June 9th, Harvard welcomed 42 students to campus, who were chosen from a highly selective application process. They will participate in an LLI curriculum that includes classes on public narrative, community organizing, negotiation, moral leadership, emotional intelligence as well as critical thinking, networking, and public speaking.  LLI participants will also have opportunities to build relationships with respected Latino mentors from the government, nonprofit, and business sectors.  After their week in Cambridge, students will work in teams with faculty and administration from their home universities to design and implement community service projects. 

"This initiative represents a compelling and highly effective avenue for supporting the next generation of Latino leaders," said Walter F. Ulloa, Entravision Chairman and LLI Advisory Board Member.  "With the support of the Harvard Kennedy School and all of LLI's sponsors, we are providing these young students with a great opportunity to grow intellectually while making a difference in their communities."

"We are enormously proud of our students, and all that LLI has been able to accomplish in the four years since Walter Ulloa's commitment sparked this initiative," said Andy Zelleke, LLI faculty director and senior lecturer at Harvard Business School. "Including this year's cohort, there will be 150 talented LLI alumni having impact in their communities and, soon enough, in a range of professions.  We are also thrilled that, this September, three of them will begin their graduate studies at Harvard."

This year's faculty includes Andy Zelleke of Harvard Business School; Marshall Ganz of Harvard Kennedy School; Harvard Divinity School professor Davíd Carrasco; and Georgetown University professor Robert Bies. Among the guest speakers will be Dr. Robert Sackstein, a Harvard Medical School professor who specializes in bone marrow transplants and stem cell research; Dr. Efrain Garza Fuentes, director of multicultural programs at the Walt Disney Company; and Johnny Marines, manager of the Romeo Santos/Aventura music group. Award-winning journalist and NPR host Maria Hinojosa will be the mistress of ceremonies at the concluding dinner.

Coca-Cola will be the lead sponsor of this year's initiative. Other supporters include seed donor Entravision Communications; four-year sponsors Texas A&M International University, Univision, Southwest Airlines, the Walt Disney Company,  Time Warner, Sundra Foundation, Cantu Construction and Development Company, and Doctors Hospital at Renaissance.
