Breakthrough Central Texa (Education)
January 2015 - January

Breakthrough builds a path through college, beginning in middle school, for students from low-income communities who will become the first in their families to earn a college degree. Our program combines individualized, long-term case management with extended learning time for students who statistics say will not enroll in or graduate from college without significant support. We believe that by providing innovative educational programs to children and their families, we can have a multi-generational impact – replacing the cycle of poverty with self-sufficiency.

Con Mi Madre (Education)
August 2009 - August 2017

Con Mi MADRE is unique in that it focuses on strengthening the mother-daughter bond while providing support and educational opportunities for both daughters and mothers. 

 

Con Mi MADRE's continuum programming allows participants to decide which projects and services meet their needs. Services for girls are age and grade appropriate and topics address the social, mental and academic barriers that prevent them from attaining their educational dreams. Services for parents work to create a family culture that values education, embraces a college degree as an achievable dream for their daughters, and supports parents in raising a young Latina. 

 

All services, activities, and materials offered by Con Mi MADRE are bilingual and presented in a culturally competent manner, honoring the girls' Hispanic heritage.
