Lambda Alumni across the nation exemplify the true essence of La Unidad Para Siempre by creating and implementing a multitude of initiatives for Hermanos & their local communities.
Bring Your Hermano To Work Day
This program grants an opportunity for undergraduate or graduate Hermanos to be taken under-wing by Professional Hermanos for a day. The ambition of this event is to provide a hands-on experience and a network opportunity to Hermanos whom have aspirations in a field which, currently, other Hermanos have built careers. Professional Hermanos that are able to host another Hermano, or two, will invite interested Hermanos to shadow them for the day, thus providing a better understanding of their field of expertise.
In an effort to unite the Alumni Hermanos within the organization the Alumni Conclave was created in the Fall of 2011. The groundbreaking first meeting in Tampa, FL spawned a series of conclaves – from New York to the Senate Chamber of Rhode Island – to the historic city of Chicago. During the first conclave in Tampa, La Unidad Latina was able to outline the foundation for what the organization wanted to accomplish as an Hermandad. It was then La Unidad Latina began to formalize the Lambda Guilds and accept membership. During the second conclave in New York, La Unidad Latina took the opportunity to hand out gifts and spend time with the future of our country; our children. The third Alumni Conclave became historic as La Unidad Latina hosted its Alumni Conclave in the Rhode Island State Capitol Building, which was a first for any Latino Greek Lettered Organization. The amount of support La Unidad Latina gave to the Rhode Island Community, especially the service provided to one of its own at his Transformation High School, is the essence of what our Hermandad stands for. The fourth conclave was held in Chicago, IL in which the formation of the Brown & Gold Alumni University Initiative was discussed.
The Medical Guild was formed in early 2011 with the goal of uniting the professional medical members of our organization and to support to our community. On April 25th, 2012 the Medical Guild of La Unidad Latina, Lambda Upsilon Lambda Fraternity, Inc. embarked on its first ever Medical Mission. The Medical Guild traveled with a group of medical personnel and volunteers to the Dominican Republic. Over their one week mission in several poverty stricken areas they were able to assist over 1000 patients in need of medical care. The members also handled surgical cases and gave lectures to the medical staff. Click for Press Release
The Second Medical Mission will take place from June 21 to June 30, 2013 in the Dominican Republic.
