About this Campaign
2019 Lorenzo de Zavala Youth Legislative Session (LDZ), an eight-day
developmental training program on governance, communication, leadership, networking, and management skills among Latino youth. Cebastian is responsible for completing the US$895 tuition. Annually, students marshal their tuition with contributions from their family, school supporters, local civic
organizations and community investors. Sponsorships may be full or partial.
LDZ’s most important mission is leadership training and development. Though often viewed as a program on government and politics, the LDZ teaches real-life lessons that are much more enduring. Cebastian and other students take decisive action under pressure, make critical decisions that are not always guided by popular opinion, and gain valuable insight into organized group efforts. The LDZ experience develops skills that are vital to college, career, and life.
The National Hispanic Institute is a private, non-profit 501(c)3 corporation founded in 1979 in Austin, Texas, and is headquartered in Maxwell, 35 miles south of Austin. All students invited to participate are college-bound high school sophomores and juniors with an 88 or 3.2-grade point average or higher.
After completing the LDZ, NHI provides follow-up services for college admissions, financial aid consultation, career guidance, and additional programming through the Collegiate World Series (CWS).
