La Mariposa

12-SESSION PROGRAM, Ages 12-18

La Mariposa: A Personal Empowerment Program for Adolescent Latinas engages girls in twelve interactive workshop sessions where facilitators teach personal empowerment skills (JARS – Journaling, Affirmations, Personal Rules and Setting Goals). Girls will learn about the power within and the ways in which they can lead the direction of their lives, in addition to valuable skills that assist girls in exploring the impact of the values, norms and beliefs that shape them, especially those that present barriers. This guide specifically addresses the challenges with assimilating to a dual-cultural life, and reinforces a sense of pride and connection with Latina culture. All workshops are facilitated in a relational, strengths-based, trauma informed and culturally competent manner.
