For more than four decades, AAMA has been one of the most effective organizations in the country for helping Latinos become productive contributors in their communities - to become leaders.

Now AAMA has undertaken the development of a behavioral-based model of leadership that will be embedded within all of our programs and will set the people we serve on a path to further develop their potential for leadership. This model consists of three levels: Leading Self, Leading Others and Leading Community. As an individual progresses through the levels, he or she explores the challenges as well as the opportunities that come with honest self-reflection and personal development. Each individual is unique and every developmental path will be different based on the individual and his or her circumstances.

By taking a purposeful approach to development and personal mastery, we believe we can inspire the people we serve to create a personal vision for their lives and realize their unique potential.
