THE FOUR STEPS TO LATINA LEADERSHIP
The four step program empowers Latinas to pursue their passion and activate their dreams by providing educational leadership platforms, mentorship and powerful experiences through a context of sisterhood.
We accomplish this mission through the following four steps:
ACTIVATE: Our CORE PROGRAM allows young Latinas to create a solid foundation through identifying and studying the 8 fig factors based on The Fig Factor book (discovery, wisdom, humility, persistence, vulnerability, vision, awareness and passion) in the 2‐day course.
RECEIVE: Our MENTOR PROGRAM provides each graduate with a female mentor that will support them for six months with monthly meetings and regular check‐in calls. Our volunteer mentors are part of a team of caring adults that help to define goals, encourage positive development and bring new ideas. Graduates become accountable through sustaining support.
GROW: Additional benefits are provided to each graduate in the SUPPORT PROGRAM with access to new experiences through scholarships and local partnerships. This step creates a connection between the graduate, the diverse community and it’s assets. Expanding ones network and circle of influence.
SHARE: There’s power in your passions and our GIVE BACK PROGRAM allows each graduate to make a difference by supporting the causes that matter most to them. This empowering step demonstrates the need to pay it forward to improve our world but is also a key to becoming a successful citizen in our society and expands the possibilities for our future Latina leaders.
