Con Mi MADRE

Con Mi MADRE is a two-generation organization that empowers young Latinas and their mothers through education and support services that increase preparedness, participation, and success in post-secondary education. Con Mi MADRE translates to ‘with my mother,’ which exemplifies a unique programming element -- the organization intentionally engages mothers in their daughter's educational journey from 6th grade through college graduation. Con Mi MADRE contributes to increasing college completion rates among Latina youth and decreasing the cycle of poverty. With support from Impact Austin, Con Mi MADRE will reach an additional 180 mother-daughter teams in Central Texas.
