Con Mi MADRE’s mission is to empower young Latinas and their mothers through educational and support services that increase preparedness, participation, and success in post-secondary education.
Our vision is education and success for all Latinas!
Con Mi MADRE is unique in that it focuses on strengthening the mother-daughter bond while providing support and educational opportunities for both daughters and mothers.
Con Mi MADRE’s continuum programming allows participants to decide which projects and services meet their needs. Services for girls are age and grade appropriate and topics address the social, mental and academic barriers that prevent them from attaining their educational dreams. Services for parents work to create a family culture that values education, embraces a college degree as an achievable dream for their daughters, and supports parents in raising a young Latina.
All services, activities, and materials offered by Con Mi MADRE are bilingual and presented in a culturally competent manner, honoring the girls’ Hispanic heritage.
Con Mi MADRE serves over 600 6th-12th grade girls and their mothers each year as well as students in their undergraduate studies.
