Latinas in Progress Deadline September 1 The Latinas in Progress College Prep program seeks high school Latina students who are eager and motivated to pursue higher education. LIP exposes senior high school Latinas to college life and provides them with the tools needed to succeed in their personal and professional life. The LIP Education Series consists of five learning sessions, city-wide volunteer opportunities, and HWNT mentors. The workshop teaches them: to learn more about applying to college and college life, to improve their writing skills, to be more assertive, the importance of civic participation, health and wellness tips and other important life skills and college campus safety. Sessions are taught at local partner colleges or universities and held on Saturdays during the school year. The LIP Education Series mentoring component consists of Latina women who share their stories of adversity, educational achievement, and professional success. Each session provides enriching learning experiences and encouragement while providing access to information, financial resources, and access to our partner colleges/universities. HWNT is recruiting high school girls to participate in the college prep program. Girls participate in monthly leadership and college readiness workshops held at local universities. Deadline to apply is September 1. For more information visit hwnt.org, email firstname.lastname@example.org or 915.219.8554.
