About Con Mi MADRE
Headquartered in Austin, TX, Con Mi MADRE is a non-profit organization serving the Central Texas and Fort Worth regions. Con Mi MADRE partners with school districts to deliver a social-emotional learning and college readiness curriculum to students starting from the 6th grade and through undergraduate college years. Con Mi MADRE implements a dual-generational program meaning out-of-school events, like college trips, conferences, and fairs, are designed to include the parent in each step of the student's educational journey. It takes an entire community to prepare the next generation for success and Con Mi MADRE is spearheading the effort.
At Con Mi MADRE, we believe that every Latina student has the potential to embrace who they are, define their future, and change the world.
Our mission is to empower young Latinas and their mothers through the education and support services that increase preparedness, participation, and success in post-secondary education.
Our vision is to see Latina students, equipped with knowledge and support, rewrite the narrative of her family and community.
