K-12 Outreach Event: Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute’s Mentoring Power Hour - Ready to Lead L.A.
By: Gidti Ludesirishoti, PE
On November 15th, 2014 five ASCE volunteers, Victor Aguirre, Isamar Escobar, Rafael Contreras, Remi Candaele, and Gidti Ludesirishoti, joined over 30 other volunteer mentors for the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute’s (CHCI) Mentoring Power Hour. The Power Hour was a part of a whole day event called Ready 2 Lead. Each mentor was given the opportunity to speak with 4-8 students at a time and describe their own stories and answer questions from the students or a prepared set. The mentor backgrounds were highly diverse and included; University Students, teachers, engineers, lawyers, politicians, and many more. Each set of students was different from the last and there were several aspiring leaders that were definitely getting read to lead in their futures.
