Latina Associates for Collaborative Endeavors (LACE) is an NAO mentoring project developed by former NAO Senior Consultant, Guadalupe Guajardo. Through LACE, NAO is developing a core group of bilingual and bicultural facilitators and consultants to serve nonprofits working with Latinos—Oregon's emerging majority minority population. With Guadalupe’s guidance, participants take part in a supportive peer learning community, receive professional development training, and undertake a practicum in which they work directly with Guadalupe to provide consulting services to NAO’s nonprofit clients.
