In Central Texas, over 50% of school children are Hispanic,
1 in 3 of these children live in poverty,
Only 16% of Hispanic youth stay in school long enough to get a college degree.
This is one of the reasons why Con Mi MADRE empowers young Latinas and their mothers through education and support services to increase preparedness, participation, and success in post-secondary education.
What's unique about Con Mi MADRE is in our name: "Mothers And Daughters Raising Expectations." We educate and support Latina students and their mothers, together we create a supportive college-going culture that leads to:
100% of our seniors graduating from high school
78% of our students enrolling directly into college
Less than 1% experiencing teenage pregnancy.
Since 1992, Con Mi MADRE has assisted over 3000 young Latinas to and through post-secondary education!
Wondering what you can do with all that money you saved on Black Friday and Cyber Monday?
