Hermanitas Leadership Team (HLT)

Welcome to the Hermanitas Leadership Team (HLT)! We’re thrilled to have you join us in our mission to empower and uplift young Latina women through the Hermanitas Program. As stewards of this transformative initiative, we oversee all aspects of the program, from planning and coordination to implementation and evaluation. Our team works tirelessly to ensure that each Hermanita receives the support, mentorship, and resources needed to thrive personally, academically, and professionally. From organizing engaging seminars and workshops to facilitating meaningful mentorship relationships, we’re committed to providing a nurturing and empowering environment where Hermanitas can flourish and reach their full potential. Together, we strive to cultivate the next generation of Latina leaders who will make a positive impact in their communities and beyond. Join us as we embark on this journey of mentorship, empowerment, and sisterhood, making a lasting difference in the lives of young Latina women.

Mission: Their goal is to develop partnerships with San Diego county public schools in order to identify and empower ~60 Hermanitas through a curriculum that helps Hermanitas to successfully complete High School and to pursue Higher education, and develop a lifelong commitment to MANA. The Hermanitas Leadership Team consists of current and former Hermanitas Mentors who have been in the mentor role for a minimum of 1 year.
