“This would be a great opportunity for SCIP to create a ‘Best in Class’ Hispanic-focused graduate program that brings attention to the exceptional talent the Latino community has to offer,” expressed Miguel & Monica Mancebo, SCIP Founders.
SCIP currently serves the Hispanic "Graduate" population, however does not have a developed program at this time and would use the grant to develop one. In 2015, SCIP became more involved with the recruitment of Latino graduates and creating opportunities for them with key supporters, such as JP Morgan Chase, Thomson Reuters, Microsoft, Bank of America, New York Life, and Credit Suisse. That same year, SCIP was recognized by the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence as a national “Bright Spot in Hispanic Education”.
Alexander was selected as one of the 2016 Coors Light Líderes, because of his commitment and success to opening doors for young professionals, especially Latinos to acquire the experience and confidence needed to work in a large company. Through his involvement with SCIP, Alexander helps create opportunities for internships with JP Morgan Chase and other Fortune 500 companies and facilitates attendance to workshops for SCIP Young Leaders.
“I am honored to represent my community for this year’s Coors Light Líderes program,” said Alexander Almonte, “It is my passion to play a role in helping Latino students and young professionals aspire to succeed beyond mid-level management and my is goal to empower the next generation of global leaders. I am grateful for the opportunity to compete and hopefully win a grant for the Selective Corporate Internship Program.”
“Through the Coors Light Líderes program, we have the opportunity to create awareness about 12 outstanding Latino leaders who are inspiring others and making a difference to improve the quality of life in communities across the country,” said Karina Diehl, Director, Community Commerce and Partnerships at MillerCoors.
Spread the word, follow SCIP on social media (@SCIPLeaders) and with your help, SCIP can create a “Best in Class” Graduate Program to attract, retain, and place qualified candidates in Corporate Management.
