Arriba Las Mujeres believes in building a network of civically engaged Latina women in Texas through an immersive personal development and leadership training program. We invest in empowering women to harness their creativity and leadership skills to become powerful professionals in their communities.
This is a virtual professional development and leadership program open to young Latina women and people who self-identify as women, who are preferably between 16-26 years old, across Texas. Arriba Las Mujeres gives young women the opportunity to engage Jolt Initiative’s advocacy.
At the end of the program, all participants will have the opportunity to meet and network in Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio Saturday, August 5 with members of other organizations across the state that are working directly on the issues impacting the Latino community.
Arriba Las Mujeres was created to take back the Latina narrative and encourage members of our community to become involved in telling our story and elevating our community in a positive light. Twenty applicants will be chosen for each of the four regions (Austin, DFW, Houston and San Antonio) by Jolt’s selection committee.
