MANA del Norte
MANA del Norte is a non-profit 501c3 organization serving as a voice and resource for Latinas in the tri-county area of Los Alamos, Rio Arriba, and Santa Fe. MANA del Norte supports programs and legislative initiatives that foster a better quality of life for all.
MANA del Norte fundraises throughout the year to provide Latinas residing in northern New Mexico with opportunities to continue undergraduate and graduate studies at any accredited, 2 or 4 year post-secondary school in New Mexico.
MANA del Norte, a chapter of MANA, has a proven track record of mentoring young Latinas. Our HERMANITAS project works with young Latinas, ages 11-17. The project is designed to guide young girls toward healthy and productive teen years by providing growth-enhancing, challenging leadership opportunities. The girls have opportunities to participate in a wide range of activities, such as workshops, field trips, seminars and fundraising. Our mentors (hermanas) teach the hermanitas life skills and model leadership qualities necessary to succeed.
