Since 1989, HWNT's Latinas In Progress (LIP) aims to provide students with comprehensive and enriching learning experiences that allow them access to opportunities, information, financial resources, and exposure to universities.

Latinas In Progress aims to provide students with comprehensive and enriching learning experiences that allow them access to opportunities, information, financial resources, and exposure to universities. Each year’s curriculum is based upon our five founding pillars:

  • Preparation for college and vocational schools
  • Civic Enrichment & Leadership Skills
  • Health Awareness and Self-improvement
  • Writing Skills
  • Assertiveness Training

Sessions are taught at local partner colleges or universities and held on Saturdays throughout the school year. The LIP Education Series mentoring component consists of Latina women who share their stories of adversity, educational achievement and professional success. Each session provides enriching learning experiences and encouragement while providing access to information, financial resources, and access to our partner colleges/universities.

Let's begin to Ignite Your Passion for Higher Education!
