"Con Mi MADRE has taught me valuable skills I can use in the future. I had the opportunity to help build their website, work with their social media, and write for their blog."
-Alejandra, 2013 Communications Intern
“I'm a big Con Mi MADRE fan because I believe education is the great equalizer. However, it's CMM's holistic approach that I personally love. Bringing up strong Latina women isn't just about getting them into college, it's giving them the edge despite economic, demographic and geographic hurdles by helping them navigate the crazy teenage years. This program does that and more. I'm so proud to be a part of what's happening with Con Mi MADRE. I look forward to our continued success! ”
- Alexis Ferguson, Board Member, 2016 Corazon Awards Chair, Corazon Awards Auctions Chair
