Emerging Leaders Program

  • There is no GPA requirement for recruits who participate in the Emerging Leaders Program. The program is open to any student who attends classes at Hostos Community College; including students in the CUNY Language Emersion Program and the CUNY Start Program.

  • A Hostos Emerging Leader Program member commits to one semester of service at a time and makes a generous commitment of 16 hours to volunteering and community service.

  • The initiative is to provide students, who may want to participate in doing community service activities or may benefit from receiving special training, with the opportunity to do so, without overwhelming them in their efforts to work to improve themselves academically.

  • The hope is that by giving students who have struggled the opportunity to participate in specialized programming, they may be more inclined to be active on campus, may receive unique mentoring from Ambassadors or SOS Team Members and can grow and develop into valuable assets to the college community as well as improving themselves academically.

  • The Emerging Leaders Program represent a third tier in Hostos Leadership Academy’s Membership and members of this group will be eligible for promotion into the SOS Team or Hostos Student Ambassador Program, based upon meeting or exceeding their GPA and volunteer service criteria.
