Leadership development is an integral part of HND’s mission and vision. HND seeks out new opportunities to provide services and programs that will develop the next generation of Hmong American leaders. HND recognizes that young and old Hmong leaders face special challenges in bridging the generations, economic and educational gaps, and traditional political factions that exist within the community. In recognizing this gap in the community, HND seeks to develop leaders and enhance the leadership development efforts of its partner agencies through education, advocacy, and youth development.
