AVANZA is a leadership development program for young Latino adults ages 18-35 in the Portland Tri-county area. Its goal is to provide training in diverse leadership skills and create a group of young adult leaders who will participate in community efforts to better the opportunities for Latinos in the educational, social and professional spheres.
