Adelante Mujeres


To provide holistic education and empowerment opportunities to low-income Latina women and their families to ensure full participation and active leadership in the community.

Bottom Line for Portland

Adelante Mujeres means "women rise up, move forward" in Spanish. Its Chicas Youth Development Program supports more than 500 girls, and over the past four years has maintained a 100 percent graduation rate and 100 percent college enrollment for 12th-grade girls in the program.

"I started at the very bottom, not being that one person that is considered "smart."  My grades currently are straight A's, which I'm proud to say." —Yolanda, Chicas Youth Development participant
