Club Leaders Wanted
Make a difference in a girl’s life as a club leader. Latinitas hosts media enrichment clubs
where girls can build confidence through creative expression. Latinitas partners with

Latinitas clubs or monthly Saturday workshops. Our clubs focus on encouraging girls to
build confidence through creative multimedia expression. Girls in our clubs will participate
in hands-on activities such as creative writing, photography, arts & crafts, skits and more.
Our clubs connect girls with positive role models and encourage girls to express
themselves in a safe and supportive environment. As a club leader, you would guide
small team activities and motivate girls to foster a positive self-esteem. Volunteers
