PR/HYLI is featured in CNY Latino, the premier Hispanic Newspaper in Central New York.

This year marked the 34th anniversary of the Angelo Del Toro Puerto Rican/Hispanic Youth Leadership Institute (PR/HYLI) – a state-funded program named after Assemblyman Del Toro, who passed away in 1994.

This leadership program – supported by staff and volunteers from the statewide Regional Bilingual Education Resource Network (RBERN) and New York City Public Schools – offers weekend training sessions for more than 400 student delegates across the state. It launches every fall semester and culminates every spring with a three-day Institute in Albany, New York. On March 8-11, 275 students were invited to participate in the weekend event that included a mock legislative session in the Assembly Chamber, where students debated proposed bills impacting their communities.

The Angelo Del Toro Puerto Rican/Hispanic Youth Leadership Institute is an innovative collaboration with the NYS Assembly/Senate Puerto Rican/Hispanic Task Force in conjunction with the annual SOMOS, Inc. conference, the New York State Education Department, Office of Bilingual Education and World Languages and other agencies as appropriate.
