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.

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.
Participants can learn entrepreneur skills and principles that drive achievement, grit, and resilience. Our experts and mentors will guide them in creating both short and long term goals and a plan to achieve them.
We facilitate virtual and in-person STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) workshops to develop and guide participant inquiry, discussion, and critical thinking.
In 2020, all workshops and events were provided free of charge thanks to donations and a RAP tax grant.
