The Latino population is growing faster than any other group in the United States. In the next forty years the Hispanic population will triple in size, yet many of today’s young Latinas lack positive role models in their lives. In fact, many young Latinas in the United States are in a state of crisis. They need to know we care about them. Together we can provide the support they need to realize their full potential, and in doing so, help shape the future of our country. Here’s how you can do your part:
As a Facilitator
As a Latina woman you have the unique power to influence our young hermanas. You represent what is possible. Who better to engage them than one of their own? Non-Latinas play an important role, too! Your involvement as someone who cares for their well-being will help them see that non-Latinos can care, too. As facilitators of La Mariposa, our newly expanded empowerment program grounded on evidence-based principles, your success stories can deliver an impressionable dose of inspiration.
