On October 16th, 2015, Ronald Bautista will be joining pioneering new American leaders in elected office during the Annual Power & Policy Conference at the White House.
Ronald will also be a speaker at the Ready to Win training for the New American Leaders Project (NALP) at the George Washington University on October 18th. NALP is the only national nonpartisan organization specifically focused on preparing first- and second-generation immigrants for civic leadership.
Nearly one in five Americans are either immigrants or were born in the U.S. to at least one immigrant parent. The organization recruits recognized individuals with a track record of civic involvement and trains them in the key skills needed for leadership from the community to the Capitol. At this training, the nonprofit will be providing new American leaders with a non-partisan, safe space in which they can learn about the challenges and opportunities of citizenship commitment and determine how they can best contribute to making our democracy stronger and more vibrant. NALP’s goals are threefold:
To expand the number of immigrants in leadership positions
Increase voter participation in immigrant communities
Allow immigrant voters more opportunities to engage with leaders who reflect their unique experiences
Ronald Bautista will be a speaker at the panel “The Differentiating Factors of Hispanic Students: Cultural Awareness, Technology Access, and Learning styles.” The CUNY Conference will take place at the Medgar Evers College on September 18, 2015.
The higher education arena often distinguishes between traditional and non-traditional students, having Hispanic students as part of the non-traditional students group. This panel will discuss about this student group and the factors that contribute to keep them motivated and engaged in their college studies. It will also discuss cultural awareness, technology access, and the learning styles that are important to consider when creating support and intervention programs for this group.

I had to go watch a game in order to become a fan of the MLS. Finally, on August 15th, I officially became a NY Red Bulls fan! Yes, #NYisRED and we are #NJsoccer :D. Just for the record, we won 3-0 against Toronto FC and celebrated with fireworks.
