Today is the final day to submit applications to the El Paso Hispanic Chamber of Commerce for its Empire Builders -- Jovenes Empresarios program.
The group was launched in 2011, with the purpose of cultivating future business leaders in El Paso and to provide young entrepreneurs with business-to-business training and mentoring.
It consists of 25 members, all young professionals who either own their own company or are part of a management team.
"The objective of this group is in response to gaps of young professionals represented at various levels: civic, corporate and political within our city," said Cindy Ramos-Davidson, CEO of the El Paso Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
Courses will cover those areas and build the skills necessary to become a productive community builder.
Members attend courses over a 12-month period beginning in January.
