Resources for the Community, Businesses, and Organizations

Continuing education is the minimum requirement for success in businesses. Participate in our educational programs, or register to our Entrepreneurial Hub, and take your business to the next level.

Educational Programs

In 2013, LACCC launched the Latino Leadership Development Institute (LLDI) to provide in-depth, ongoing educational programs to professionals, entrepreneurs and youth in our community. Through the years the programs have evolved to meet the needs of the community. In 2020 the LACCC created a 501 (c)3 LACC- Institute to host our educational programs

Some Latino entrepreneurs plan on involving their children in their family business and it is their family legacy. Our youth programs offer an opportunity for the students to explore their entrepreneurial mindset and prepares them to identify their passion and goals.
