Cihuatl Women's Project

The Cihuatl Women's Project builds the capacity of indigenous women in the community to advocate for themselves and address reproductive health issues. This project works with women in a culturally-based approach to holistic women's health and leadership.

Cyber Espacio

This project is volunteer based effort to share and teach low-income families to use technology. We believe that technology is an integral aspect of our history and identity.

 

Computer classes are scheduled every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 6-8 p.m. at our office in Highland Park.

Xinachtli

The Xinachtli (Germinating Seed) Youth Leadership and Health Development Project is a rites of passage, comprehensive culturally based youth development program designed to provide adolescent female youth the guidance for a healthy development into adulthood. The project incorporates a holistic health focus and leadership process for the development of personal and community responsibility to allow participants to serve as health teachers and guides for other young women.
