As part of the Adelante Chicas summer camp series, the girls participate in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) activities. Pictured here are chicas on a field trip to Intel to learn about robots and STEM careers.
Adelante Chicas promotes volunteer service activities as a way to engage and empower Latina girls to take an active role in bettering their communities. Previous service projects include Habitat for Humanity, Salvation Army Bell Ringing, Day of the Child Fair, and volunteering with public libraries.
Adelante Chicas is grateful to the Nike Foundation for sponsoring the summer soccer camp. The camp provides Latina girls a chance to get off of the sideline and into the game.
The Adelante Chicas take a trip to see Alice in Wonderland at the Newmark Theater in Portland to foster an appreciation of the arts.
The Adelante Chicas annual overnight camping trips expose many of the girls to their first-ever camping experience. Time together outdoors creates friendships, improves self-confidence, inspires a love of nature, and promotes healthy lifestyle choices.
