The Strength to Lead.
Our mission is to close the opportunity divide for Latinas by empowering them with the skills, confidence, and network necessary to thrive personally and professionally.
We envision a future where every Latina will have access to the education, experiences, and guidance required to realize her true potential through leadership development and a pipeline of intergenerational Latina mentors.
We draw upon the values and strengths of Latino cultures to focus on the shared experiences of young women from diverse, underserved communities who may experience discrimination due to race, ethnicity, nationality, language, gender, and sexuality. We are inclusive of all.
The Chica Effect
We intentionally focus on nourishing our Chicas' personal growth as well as their physical and mental health. We foster an environment where young, urban Latinas can understand their history and culture, and build the confidence necessary to pursue their personal and professional goals through the support of peer network and accomplished, caring adults.
