The mission of Entre Mujeres is to empower Latina high school students to recognize their personal worth and strengthen their leadership abilities, self-confidence, and ability to leverage their cultural assets to serve as agents of change in the Latino community and beyond. The objective of this program is to organize Entre Mujeres circles.
