LOFT (LATINOS ON FAST TRACK):
HHF believes youth are the leaders of today, not tomorrow, or the next generation through their "Actionable Leadership" effort which focuses on innovation. HHF believes that through access to technology, an immediate impact can be made on thousands or millions. The Latinos On Fast Track (LOFT) is a leadership and workforce development program that was developed for that purpose.
The LOFT Institute tracks , preps, connects, and places young leaders as they transition from high school to college, and graduate school, and well into their careers. Through LOFT, students and young professionals participate in more than 30 LOFT events including leadership trainings, field-tailored symposia and workshops including STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), finance, entrepreneurship, public policy, education, entertainment, media and social innovation among other priority fields. LOFT also focuses on addressing issues such as financial literacy, healthy lifestyles, upward mobility, the public and private sectors, and the importance of network building. LOFT also develops campaigns in various fields and in innovation.
In addition, through LOFT Network, the young leaders are connected to a network of tens of thousands of other students and young professionals (16-35 years old) to share experiences, guidance and knowledge.
And through LOFT Workforce, hundreds are placed into internships, mentorships, fellowships and full-time positions. An ExxonMobil executive said LOFT and HHF "revolutionized how we recruit engineers" after LOFT has delivered more than 100 engineers who were hired by the company.
