Con Mi MADRE had its 21st annual Leadership Summit, July 12-3, 2013. Mother and daughter teams from more than 15 schools came to the University of Texas at Austin to get a feel for the college life. This year there were four separate tracks: a middle school track, high school track, G.R.A.D track, and mother track. We asked girls during the summit what they love about being in Con Mi MADRE.
“Being in Con Mi MADRE has brought me out of my shell because it lets me do a lot of fun activities with a lot of other girls.”
“Con Mi MADRE helps Latinas with their education and it keeps us active, while learning new things.”
“This program helps me spend more time with my mom because we go to conferences and volunteer in the community together.”
