About Us

MANA de San Diego (MANASD) is the largest chapter of a national Latina organization. Established in 1986, its mission is to transform communities by empowering Latinas to achieve upward mobility and a better quality of life.  MANA short for “Hermana,” the Spanish word for sister, is a dynamic sisterhood of Latinas bound together by common culture and goals. In thirty-eight years, MANASD has built a beloved community of support to empower Latinas through education, leadership development, community service, and advocacy.  From its flagship Hermanitas Program serving Latina middle and high school students, to the Latina Success Leadership Program focused on mid-level professionals, MANASD serves Latinas at every stage of their lives. Through MANASD programs, Latinas reach their goals and gain the resources to not only provide for themselves and their families but to reciprocate and pay it forward in a variety of ways that contribute to thriving communities throughout our region.  When a Latina succeeds, she creates generational change that benefits our entire region.
