Virtual Volunteer

Would you like to make a difference in the lives of young Latinas?  Latinitas is a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement and empowerment of Latina youth through media, art, culture and technology.  Latinitas hosts the first digital magazine by and for young Latinas.  Our website serves as a forum for young Latinas to express themselves and acts as a resource guide to help girls realize their fullest potential.

We invite volunteers to join our team and help encourage the next generation of young Latina leaders.  In addition to our opportunities to help in our headquarters in Texas, volunteer opportunities exist for volunteers who would like to assist remotely.
