Adelante Chicas is the first program of its kind in Oregon to provide a comprehensive and proactive approach to empower Latina girls.
We are committed to see improved measurable results on issues including: educational commitment and aspirations, community and school involvement, peer relations, and positive cultural identity.
o Supports young Latinas to preserve, foster, and share their cultural heritage
o Promotes healthy lifestyles and options for positive futures
o Builds community through leadership development and intergenerational support networks
o Motivates participants to explore innovative ideas for ecological awareness and advocacy
Adelante Chicas is reaching girls ages 9 to 16 through non-traditional, bilingual afterschool programming, leadership opportunities, and community involvement.
We work in partnership with the families of participating girls to strengthen the Chicas’ foundation; positive cultural identity.
