The Hispanic Star Cleveland Hub is part of the network of The Hispanic Star National, and together with over 30 other hubs throughout the country we work together to elevate Hispanics at all levels and create more inclusive communities.
AmMore Consulting LLC was one of the original signatories of the Hispanic Promise, and has continued leading the way to create the Hispanic Star Cleveland Hub. Today, the Hub is led by Marcia Moreno, president and founder of AmMore Consulting, and Roberta Duarte, Principal, Community Engagement and Outreach for Jumpstart Inc. The Hub also includes volunteers and other strategic partners who, in strategic alliance with The Hispanic Star National, design and execute local programming.
During the first three years, and in aligning with the National strategy, The Hispanic Star Cleveland focused its efforts on collaborating with local Hispanic-serving organizations such as The Hispanic Business Center, The Young Latino Network, MetroWest CDC and Global Cleveland. All of them already doing crucial work on relief campaigns aimed at supporting the community during the pandemic. The Cleveland Hub also promoted local Latino-owned businesses by creating a database.
Last year, we celebrated Hispanic Heritage Month by reaching an important milestone: the first Greater Cleveland signatory of the Hispanic Promise: The Cavs! We have now added MetroHealth, Greater Cleveland RTA and JumpStart.
For 2022, The Cleveland Hub is excited to continue growing in reach and impact in Greater Cleveland. Our goal is to have at least 10 signatories of the Hispanic Promise, award a Scholarship to a deserving Hispanic college student, and support Latinos@Work, our newly created platform that will be powered by the strengths of our founding partners: AmMore Consulting and JumpStart Inc. The goal is to connect Latino professionals and Latino entrepreneurs with each other and with organizations looking to realize their commitment expressed by signing the Hispanic Promise.
The Cleveland This hub is open to ALL individuals and organizations that want to SUPPORT our efforts. It is meant to be complementary to the efforts others are doing in our community and it is to be a positive forum and platform for information sharing.
