Sponsors and Partners
LatinSuccess encourages the participation of sponsors, hosts and partners of all kinds of corporations throughout United States, especially those with a business presence in Latin America. The main benefit for the participating corporations will be:
. Incorporation of the Leaders of the Americas Program as part of their social responsibility, opening doors to generate new development opportunities for young future leaders in Latin America.
. Access to a new source of human resources through the Alumni Network for subsidiaries in Latin America.
. Opportunities for young leaders within the corporation to visit Latin America.
. Increased presence in the local and international media as sponsors of the Leaders of the Americas Program, creating a positive corporate image in the Latin American Markets.
LatinSuccess has strategic alliances with the Chamber of Commerce on a national and bi-national level and is a member of the Georgia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, as well as other non-profit organizations.
LatinSuccess is the first non-profit organization to create links between the following: the Binational Centers of Latin America, the Binational Chambers of Commerce in the United States, U.S. Corporations, U.S. Government Programs, and participating students in various Binational programs.
For years the United States Government has participated in various programs which invite foreign citizens to visit America. In 1971, Misael Portillo (Founder, President and CEO of LatinSuccess) visited the United States for the first time as an International Visitor grantee for Venezuelan students in economics.
The United States Government also sponsors scholarship programs for Latin American students to study English at the Binational Centers. One such program is College Horizons, which is a mentorship program for high school students. Misael Portillo participated in this program as a mentor to one of the College Horizons students at CEVAZ (Centro Venezolano Americano del Zulia) in Maracaibo, Venezuela. Recently, another scholarship program sponsored by the U.S. Government was launched at CEVAZ. The program is called Access, and it provides 100 students from Maracaibo with the opportunity to learn English.
LatinSuccess has received positive support of the Leaders of the Americas Program from the Department of State.
