The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation, and specifically the Secretary of State for Foreign and Global Affairs, has supported the U.S. Hispanic Leaders Program since its creation. For its part, the Embassy of Spain in the United States is part of the selection committee of the candidates and also maintains a close relationship with the graduates of the program.
Upon completion of the program, all participants will be invited to join the Association of Hispanic Leaders (ALH) in order to maintain the link with the members of their delegation, get in touch with the participants in previous editions and thus increase this important network. Created in 2005 by a group of former participants in the program, the ALH aims to maintain the synergies generated during the program and to involve its participants in the development and implementation of initiatives in the field of political, diplomatic, economic and cultural issues affecting the relationship between the United States, Spain and Latin America. Currently, the AHL is composed of more than 150 members.
