Inspire change. Empower women. Believe in a better future.
The Aparecio Foundation is a registered, non-profit, 501(c)(3) charity. Every dollar donated goes toward our mission to fund mentoring, academic assistance, and a four year renewable scholarship program for high-potential, low-income women in Chicago Public High Schools.
Utilizing a group-mentoring model, the student mentoring initiative creates opportunities for our women scholars to connect with professional women from a wide range of industries over the course of six years.
By creating strategic partnerships with like-minded community-based organizations, local government agencies, business leaders, and educators, our long-term mentoring relationships provide opportunities for both experiential learning and advanced professional development.
These transformational interactions result in enduring and empowering changes by instilling confidence and credibility in our young women.
