Provide resources and leadership opportunities for predominately Latina, college students and alumni by participating in and organizing community service events, social activities, and academic/professional workshops.
In the Winter of 2010, an inspiring young woman gathered women from diverse backgrounds and they all joined together to establish a Chicana/ Latina based group at the University of California, San Diego.These strong and motivated women recognized the lack of support and resources offered to Chicano/Latina women and wanted to make a change. They set to provide those resources themselves and for the many future women of UCSD. This is a non-profit organization that is working towards “Poder de la Mujer” focusing on a common goal of pursuing a higher education for Chicano/ Latina women through academics, community service, and collegiate networking. This organization has an open door policy to all interested members.Members from different genders, religions, ethnicities, and sexual orientation are more than welcome to join.
Through emphasis on academics not only do
we empower our minds
but our future as well.
