Stories that Matter

The Latino Leaders Network is dedicated to bringing leaders together to establish relationships, build unity, and share personal stories. This book, Latino Leaders Speak: Personal Stories of Struggle and Triumph, is a collection of 33 inspiring short stories shared by Latino leaders who have made and continue to make a difference in local, national, and global communities. These personal stories reflect resilience, compassion, courage, and the importance of education.

The California Global Education Project was honored to collaborate with the Latino Leaders Network to develop a curriculum guide that allows teachers to share these stories while inspiring all students to identify their own stories, recognize their unique gifts, and develop the powerful leader within. The guide includes learning activities that promote agency, civic engagement, and leadership by aligning global competencies with key messages from each featured leader.
