About YLN

The Mission of The Young Latino Network is to Empower the Latino Community through Leadership Development and Civic Engagement.

Founded in 2002 by a group of hard working and forward thinking Latinos with the goal of giving young professionals in the Latino community the opportunity to come together, network, mentor and volunteer.

We are looking to be the pipeline that bridges the gap between the current leadership and the future leadership in Northeast Ohio's Latino Community. We want to inspire our community to become involved and to aspire for great things.

Please Note: Although we are called the Young Latino Network, we are open to all individuals who are committed to our mission. We fulfill our mission through leadership development, civic engagement and networking. We are partners with corporations, non-profit organizations, schools and universities, as well as other community organizations who we strategically align with in order to fulfill our mission.
