    PROGRAM overview

    GDx is a digital communications and leadership development program for ambitious and courageous young people. If you're committed to making meaningful change in your world, and you’re driven toward building up your community, NHI is for you.

    GDx participants apply during the fall semester and complete their registration and prerequisite mini-courses through the December holiday season. Before the holiday break, students join an orientation group led by an older NHI member who acts as “Orientation Leader”. Upon the start of the New Year, GDx participants officially join their regional or local community teams and begin the learning journey in preparation for the summer debates.

    PROGRAM overview

    CWSx is the National Hispanic Institute’s (NHI) capstone experience for high school juniors preparing for their senior year. Created 30 years ago, it aims to provide future leaders as much insight and practice as possible to prepare for the transition to adulthood, with an emphasis on both college readiness and leadership development.

    Getting coached for success in the college admissions process is only one part of making decisions about your future; making a final institutional selection based on your life goals and values requires a different lens. The CWSx addresses the emotional and psychological factors that impact life plans by providing a process for decision-making called Inquiry Based Learning. Using this process, students team up to take on complex challenges and use inquiry-based processes to offer strategic plans for their future goals. CWSx graduates are considered high potential candidates for future faculty roles with NHI, as they are students of the inquiry process used by NHI leaders to evolve new program experiences, ideas, and concepts in community social entrepreneurship.

    PROGRAm overview

    Since 1982, high ability, high achieving 10th and 11th grade students have graduated from the competitive and transformative Lorenzo de Zavala Youth Legislative Session (LDZ) experience designed for future community leaders. Students form a cohort of 150 delegates ages 16-17 in community positions that propose, review, and adopt policies to advance the Latino community. The week-long quest covers a broad array of skills, competencies, personal growth opportunities, social relevance, and topics of national and international relevance to Latino quality of life.

    This year, NHI will host three in-person LDZ programs and one digital LDZx (virtual) and will primarily serve former Great Debate and GDx students. For more information on availability for new NHI members, please email admissions@nhimail.com.
