(ACTIVISTS CREATING AND TRANSFORMING)
It doesn’t matter if you are young or what your ethnicity is; your voice has power. You can make a difference in someone’s life and Girls A.C.T will be the perfect program to raise awareness and reach other Latina girls. - Monica (Girls A.C.T. 2017)
SEPA Mujer Inc., in partnership with the Suffolk County Department of Labor, presents a program specifically crafted for Latina girls!
Our Latina Youth program is committed to creating safe spaces for growth, mentoring, and leadership development of Suffolk County’s Latina youth. Every summer, we provide a warm, constructive, and encouraging space where the youth are mentored and celebrated for their creativity, leadership, and their peaking interest in social justice.
Youth will have the opportunity to work side by side with SEPA Mujer's staff in our central office in Patchogue from July 1st to August 16th 2019 and the Suffolk County Department of Labor pays participants minimum wage. The youth will lead projects and tasks imperative to the growth and success of SEPA Mujer while enhancing their own skills, developing new professional skills, and honing in on their passions as pathways to careers.
