Latinas on the Verge of Excellence

New York City

The Latinas On the Verge of Excellence, L.O.V.E., Mentoring Program supports and empowers young Latinas to strive both in school and in life through positive role modeling. The L.O.V.E. Mentoring Program aims to increase high school graduation rates, college enrollment, and healthy lifestyles among young Latinas with the support of positive role models who believe in their inner power and are committed to help them achieve their full potential. Mentors meet with their mentees in partner high schools for an hour and a half every week; mentees are students from local high schools. Mentors are trained female volunteers from local universities.
