Mi Carrera

Mi Carrera

Mi Carrera is a program for young women in middle and high school. The program addresses the importance of decision making to develop positive relationships and influence career planning. Mi Carrera motivates self-discovery and a means toward a better life that includes higher education, employment, and self-sufficiency.

Classes are held weekly at participating middle and high schools in the San Antonio Area.  The classes promote self-awareness and character development, career exploration, job readiness skills, and financial literacy. All girls are encouraged to grow together and learn from one another by volunteering in the community, attending college campus visits and family events.



Mi Carrera addresses a number of topics such as:

  • Body Image
  • Communication
  • Stress Management
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Relationships
  • Goal Setting
  • Career Options
  • Cultural Awareness
