Quince Project Accepting Applications

The Quince Project is hosting a summer leadership program geared toward helping teen girls make the transition from girlhood to young adult through a quinceañera celebration. Young women are invited to apply to this free program which will culminate with a group quince party. Girls will learn about their heritage and the cultural significance of a quinceañera as they work in small teams to develop leadership skills and organize a group quince. The mission of Quince Project is to provide young Latinas with the tools they need to succeed as young adults. Our objective is to encourage young Latinas to become leaders in their communities, to foster cultural pride, to pursue higher education, to build life skills, to discover creative ways to express themselves and to develop a strong voice.
