We grow together, learn together, and excel together.
We are mothers and daughters raising expectations since 1992.
Formerly known as the Junior League of Austin’s Hispanic Mother-Daughter Program, Con Mi MADRE is a non-profit organization who’s mission is to increase the representation of Hispanic women in post-secondary education through a focus on education and social support services to girls and their mothers.
Since 1992, Con Mi MADRE has served 2,185 mother-daughter teams, with 76% of 733 graduating seniors going on to a two or four-year college. For fiscal year 2011-2012, over 65% of girls were the first in their family to attend college, and 77% came from low-income families.
Con Mi MADRE provides holistic and culturally relevant programming to its participants, which targets three key areas: college readiness, college enrollment, and college persistence.
Programming includes: on-site campus meetings; educational conferences and workshops focusing on peer pressure, self-esteem, study skills, and college readiness; individual counseling; volunteer service; leadership development; parent support groups; financial literacy; college campus visits; mentoring; assistance with the college application process; financial aid; and college scholarships.
