Hispanic Mother-Daughter Program
The HMDP is an early outreach educational program that has been educating, preparing and empowering participants to achieve academic excellence for university entrance and graduation for the past twenty-five (25) years.
A total of 140 mother-daughter teams will be selected during the daughter's 7th grade year and will begin attending monthly workshops during the 8th grade year. Workshops and events will continue throughout high school until graduation from the university. The mother and daughter must make a firm commitment to attend all workshops throughout their involvement in the program. It is important for applicants to know that being a particpant of our program means being dedicated and involved for TEN years. A student who lives with a legal guardian or a father on a permanent basis instead of the mother is eligible to apply and is also expected to make the same commitment.
