THE STORY:

Instituto Del Progreso Latino’s mission is to contribute to the fullest development of Latino immigrants and their families through education, training and employment that fosters full participation in the changing United States society while preserving cultural identity and dignity.

At Instituto we believe that education is power – the power and freedom to live and enjoy the best of what this country has to offer. It is the power to provide for our families and ensure a better quality of life.

About Mujer Avanzando:

Mujer Avanzando is a comprehensive program of integrated services at Instituto that focuses on career pathways, wealth creation, Latina leadership, and childcare designed for Chicago working mothers earning between $10K and $40K annually. The program model produces demonstrable results where working women increase their earnings, multiply their household assets and eventually become homeowners.   

Mujer Avanzando is structured around 4 core program components:

  • Career Pathways - Providing one-on-one career coaching and career training to help women achieve their goals.
  • Wealth Creation and Asset Development - Participants work one-on-one with a financial coach to create a family budget, enroll in financial literacy workshops, and pursue opportunities to build assets through investing.
  • Leadership Development - Through a culturally contextualized curriculum, participants focus on self-discovery and knowledge/skill building.
  • Child Care - In order for participants to fully participate in the program, Mujer Avanzando provides on-site and/or geographically appropriate child care for women enrolled in the program.

While the vast majority of participants are single mothers, the program also empowers women who are married, and intend to separate and/or divorce their spouses - largely to flee domestic violence - but lack the resources and the support to do so and be economically secure. Every dollar donated will be used to continue to further Mujer Avanzando's mission to empower women and further their quest for success and self-sufficiency!
