The Hispanic Women’s Network of Texas (“HWNT”), Fort Worth Chapter's Latinas in Progress™ (“LIP”) Education Series seeks high school Latina students entering their senior year, who are eager and motivated to pursue higher education.
LIP exposes senior high school Latinas to college life and provides them with the tools needed to succeed in their personal and professional life. The LIP Education Series consists of five learning sessions, city wide volunteer opportunities, and HWNT mentors. The modules teach them:
- to learn more about applying to college and college life
- to improve their writing skills
- to be more assertive
- the importance of civic participation
- health and wellness tips and other important life skills
- college campus safety.
Sessions are taught at local partner colleges or universities and held on Saturdays from September 2015 to February 2016. 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.
