HOURS PLEDGED: 50,000
But, right now Hispanic girls and teens are suffering the highest rates of teen pregnancy, school drop out and depression, and so we started Latinitas eight years ago as a way to empower Hispanic girls and teens using media and technology. Through the vehicles of digital media education, Latina youth enrolled in Latinitas' programs and writing for Latinitas' publications are addressing issues, from their point of view, as important as college preparation to family relationships, the environment and sexual harassment!
Latinitas has served over 10,000 girls and teens since it began with lessons in web and graphic design, writing, photography, filmmaking, radio production and so much more. We encourage you to support the next generation of authors, editors, web architects, radio personalities, IT professionals....the list goes on...with any donation you can make.
