Con Mi MADRE has provided young Latinas and their mothers with education and support services for 28 years in Central Texas, originally as the Hispanic Mother-Daughter Program through the Junior League of Austin and as an independent non-profit since 2008. In 2018, Con Mi MADRE launched a Fort Worth chapter and serves 3 middles schools in Fort Worth ISD: Kirkpatrick, Riverside, and Rosemont Middle Schools. We're excited to begin our fourth year of programming!
CMM has three distinct, yet successive programs:
1) Post-secondary Preparedness Program (6th-10th grades)
2) Post-secondary Participation Program (11th-12th grades)
3) Post-secondary Success Program (enrolled college students)
Currently, our Fort Worth students are in the Post-secondary Preparedness Program where 6th-10th-grade students receive 12 sessions of our academic/social skills curriculum in small group settings at their schools. The curriculum focuses on how to excel in academics, have healthy relationships, effectively communicate, prepare for post-secondary education, and have healthy self-esteem.
Each program follows a developmentally and academically appropriate curriculum that is implemented by CMM social work staff and interns. Students also receive access to conferences, fairs, college visits, and individual counseling provided by our social work staff. Participants in CMM have the resources, skills and support they need to fulfill their academic, personal, and career goals. The typical mother-daughter team receives 150-170 hours of program access and counseling each year.
Our Four Pillars:
Holistic Approach (Relationships, Academics, Social, and Emotional)
