Club Latinitas

Club Latinitas is a girl empowerment program where girls in Texas learn to build confidence while expressing themselves creatively through media, technology, art and culture. In this educational after-school newsroom, Hispanic girls learn the fundamentals of journalism through exciting hands-on activities on writing, photography, desktop publishing, film-making, audio production and web design. We currently host programs in Austin and El Paso, Texas. We are currently recruiting girls from the schools listed below to participate in our program.


Meets weekly after-school during the school year. Open to girls in grades 4 through 8th at various schools, public libraries, and housing authorities. Partners: Housing Authority of the City of El Paso: Atlas, Eisenhower, Sherman, Marmolejo, Kennedy, Baird, Johnson, Moorehead, Tays, Truman.
