Event Details

Due May 20
 
Latinitas is hosting a summer leadership program geared toward helping teen girls make the transition from girlhood to young adult through a quinceañera celebration. Young women are invited to apply to this free program which will culminate with a group quince party. Girls will learn about their heritage and the cultural significance of a quinceañera as they work in small teams to develop leadership skills and organize a group quince.  The mission of Quince Project is to provide young Latinas with the tools they need to succeed as young adults.  Our objective is to encourage young Latinas to become leaders in their communities, to foster cultural pride, to pursue higher education, to build life skills, to discover creative ways to express themselves and to develop a strong voice.
 
Members commit to attending two Saturday workshops per month throughout the summer.
 Open to girls ages 13-16. Young women will be chosen based on their leadership, volunteer and academic experience. Primary emphasis will be given to girls who have overcome a substantial challenge in their life or who have a financial hardship.
Who: Girls ages 13-16
What: leadership development program

When: Application deadline is May 20

Why: Gain leadership skills & win a quince celebration
