Mission Statement

MANA supports these young Latina students in their life-changing journey, by providing them with an exclusive and constant one-to-one Hermanitas Mentor - a woman who has walked down similar paths, has a similar life story or faced similar challenges and is now successful, responsible and empowered. Mentors and Hermanitas attend monthly education seminars designed to prepare Hermanitas for college and expose them to various career fields.
