Celebrated by Michelle Obama, Chica Project provides greater access to higher education and careers for underserved, young Latinas and girls of color (ages 14-18) from resource-challenged neighborhoods in Boston, Lynn and Lawrence, MA. Through a network of accomplished multicultural women, we empower urban girls to recognize their strengths and build the self-efficacy needed to graduate from high school, attend college and move on pathways to economic success.

Founded in 2011, we aim to close the opportunity divide by empowering our participants with the skills, confidence, and network necessary to thrive personally and professionally. We accomplish this through targeted workshops that promote personal growth, leadership advancement, and cultural identity exploration with a cohort of high-school youth in a group mentoring setting. Today, we have served and mentored over 700 young women throughout Massachusetts.
