Leadership and Professional Development
Ford Motor Company Fund collaborates with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI) to help inspire future leaders by providing high schoolers with the chance to spend a week in Washington, D.C.
While in our nation’s capital, these students have the opportunity to learn how the federal government works and the importance of their role as active citizens. Students network with key figures and representatives, receive leadership training, form lasting friendships with peers, tour historic landmarks and sites and develop a deeper understanding of how they can affect positive change when they return to their own communities.
Disclaimer: Only students who attend schools that participate in the Ford Driving Dreams program can apply.
