Empower a young woman of color.




Empower a young woman of color.


Latinas On The Plaza became a 501-C-3 non-profit organization in 2015. Our focus is on accelerating the pathway to success for women of color. The pathway offers The Little Arrow (for ages 4 – 9), FUERTE (STRONG) Leadership Program (for ages 19-30) and ArcHer Leadership Program (for Emerging Latina Leaders).

Our experience shows that women of color including little girls thrive in environments of like-minded, age groups and culturally inviting learning environments. We have designed programs that cater to the needs of women of color who have chosen professional careers and/or entrepreneurship. We strengthen her leadership skills, Her life skills and Her soft skills. We believe there is a Leader in Her, and we strive to bring that Leader out.

In between the programs we offer workshops, virtual webinars, mastermind groups and retreats. We strive to maintain a supportive community during and post programs. We have a thriving Alumni Group(s) that enables our younger women to connect with our more seasoned women of color
