Club Leaders of the Future: Phoenix AZ
Phoenix’s first Club Leaders of the Future met at Atlas Bistro in Scottsdale, Ariz., on Jan. 30, 2014, for a night of networking and sharing each other’s inspiring stories. The eclectic array of young leaders included a state representative, a journalist, community organizers and educators — all of whom are working to achieve their dreams and help improve the community. The group of 14 emerging stars mixed and mingled while drinking wine from Latino vintners in Napa Valley and eating from a menu centered around locally grown food. After the introductions, club leaders discussed ways to unify the Latino community as a whole. Many of the selected club members were the first in their families to graduate high school or college. They spoke candidly about wanting good role models to show them the pathways to success, and many were working actively to provide that experience to today’s youth. The evening culminated in an exchange of business cards and flurry of promises to stay in touch.
