OUR PROCESS

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

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

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

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

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.
