Inspiring Latina youth with hope, confidence, and purpose
At Ella Rises we inspire Latina youth with hope, confidence, and purpose; to continue their education, become community leaders, and preserve their cultural heritage. As our participants engage in Ella Rises, we facilitate virtual and in-person workshops inspired by Hispanic heritage and administered by skilled Latina mentors and other role models. We believe Ella Rises will impact the lives of our participants, their families, and our communities with unity, bridging cultural differences, and an empowering cycle of progress.
Ella Rises provides high-impact experiences for an empowering cycle of progress.
Our artists develop workshops to foster confidence, hope, and self-esteem by strengthening the participants' ties to their cultural heritage.
We provide mental health workshops with licensed professionals for our participants to learn emotional resilience skills. Participants will also learn to develop healthy habits to work through perceived barriers and obstacles.
Our Mariachi program strengthens personal identity and creates generational and cultural connections. Music plays an important role in the participants' lives and is proven to increase memory and language skills.
We facilitate virtual and in-person STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) workshops to develop and guide participant inquiry, discussion, and critical thinking.
