About Latinitas Por Vida
Since 2002, Latinitas has served more than 30,000 girls and teens across Texas through after-school programs, summer camps, workshops, and conferences, all of which allow for various media and technology tools to be used as storytelling mediums that empower Latina youth to innovate. After 17 years, we are seeing a wave of Latinitas Alumni, or former program participants, that are now in high school or starting their college career. Latinitas Por Vida aims to strengthen this alumni community by providing mentorship and leadership opportunities, valuable resources, and professional development.
MENTOR MATCH PROGRAM
Did you participate in Latinitas while you were in elementary or middle school? Did you attend a summer camp, workshop, or conference? Latinitas has launched a Mentor Match Program just for you. Tell us more about yourself, your interests and career goals, and Latinitas will help you find a mentor that is committed to providing academic and professional development guidance. If you are a student or entering the work world and are between the ages of 14-24, submit the Latinitas Alumni Mentor Program Application and a Latinitas Team member will connect with you.
Our goal is to help Latinitas Alumni reach their full potential, academically and professionally, while building a connection with professionals that share similar interests, backgrounds, and experiences. The Latinitas Mentor Match Program runs from August – December and January – May. Applications are accepted year-round.
- Ages 14-24
- Must have participated in at least 1 Latinitas program (Club Latinitas, Summer Camps, Chica Conferences, Teen Reporters)
- Commit to at least 1 monthly meeting with your mentor, for a minimum of 4 months
Check out some of the positive experiences and stories our Alumni and Mentors are saying about the Mentor Match Program in our Medium Blog!
