October Newsletter

Prior to covering our highlights for the month of October, we’d first like to express our gratitude for the 30+ volunteers that devoted their time and resources towards making our 7th Annual Finance Boot Camp an outstanding success. 

Students from all backgrounds had the opportunity to meet and learn from reputable Latino professionals, whose inspiration served to increase our membership, and established the foundation for our growth onto college campuses nationwide. We would like to thank BlackRock, New York Life, and Charles Schwab for their financial support, as well as Wells Fargo, for promoting internship opportunities to the Latino students in attendance.

Heading forward, we have several initiatives we’d like to share with you, and we look forward to your involvement and support in the month of October.

Fall Initiatives

LIF Student Ambassador Program: 

In a dedicated effort to maintain the momentum we gained during our boot camp this year, we are excited to announce a new LIF Student Ambassador program. We are looking for young aspiring finance professionals with demonstrated leadership potential to be the face of LIF on college campuses nationwide. If you know of any college students that would be interested in leading an LIF affiliated campus group, please refer them to Maria Gutierrez at mariaegutierrez@deloitte.com

LIF Internship Program: 

We are also looking to hire several student interns. LIF internships will provide students with a great opportunity to obtain leadership experience, while gaining exposure to a growing  501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Our internships are ideal for students that attended the boot camp, and are interested in seeking a part-time opportunity while they study at their respective university. If there is a student that you would like to recommend for one of our internship openings, please contact Maria Gutierrez at mariaegutierrez@deloitte.com.
