Mission Statement

To empower young Latinas and their mothers through educational and support services that increase preparedness, participation, and success in post-secondary education.


Girls and their mother enroll together during the student's 6th grade year and continue through the program until the student graduates with a post-secondary degree. Participants receive support through mother-daughter conferences, college visits, campus meetings, community service activities, counseling, and mentoring throughout the year. Through these activities, participants receive educational and social support needed to encourage academic and personal success. For girls with great potential as well as challenges, the Program opens up a world of possibilities, exposing them to opportunities they never before thought possible. These girls are often the first in their family--or the first girls in their family--to attend college.
