The beauty of CLI is that it allows all of us to be part of meaningful conversations and connect with others who are working within el movimiento but who we don't see on a daily basis. It is a challenge to do the type of work that we do, but it is refreshing to know that each organization isn't alone but rather part of a larger network.
CAPACES Leadership Institute has become a place where I can come and express my concerns to the coordinators. Through the RE-TURNO program I have learned the qualities that make up a good leader and that there are various opportunities to make college possible.
When you have limited resources the CLI is a great place to ask for help. They do not only provide the electronic resources we need to complete our homework but they also provide us with their assistance in understanding the assignments. They offer resources to post high school education and offer support and guidance we need.
