Mother /Daughter, Father /Son

Creating a hope and a future
The Mother-Daughter/Father-Son Program is an innovative program which helps young girls and boys and their parent/guardians to create their own hope and bright futures.

In 1986, the Mother-Daughter Program was developed at the University of Texas at El Paso with the express purpose of empowering young Hispanic women. This rapidly growing segment of our nation’s population has long been challenged by chronic academics under achievement leading to low paying jobs in the work force.

Concerned individuals from UTEP, the YWCA, El Paso’s school districts and the El Paso community at-large saw only one clear path – education. The organizers’ long-term goal was to create the possibility of a more equitable representation of Hispanic woman in the professional careers through higher education.
