Programs

Latino Family Center

The Latino Family Center and the YWCA have had a strong partnership over the past years in a variety of capacities. The Latino Family Center staff became a part of the YWCA on October 1, 2013. The following programs continued to be offered.

Hermanas / Hermanos - This program offers middle and high school girls and boys mentoring services to build healthy self-esteem through personal and social skill development with emphasis on academic pride, personal responsibility, leadership development and community service.

Both of these programs have goals to impact improved academic performance, pregnancy prevention and gang prevention. Parenting skills and guidance are also provided to parents of the Latino community to strengthen family communication and understanding.

El Pueblo - A community access program that provides information to adults regarding community resources. The staff also provides interpretation and translation services, and is available to offer transportation to clients when needed. In addition, YWCA has a bilingual licensed notary public.

LEAD Academy - The LEAD (Latinos En Accion y Desarollo) Academy is a 10 month program to build leadership within the Latino Community.  The academy has laid the groundwork for nurturing leadership among the Latinos in the High Point community.   It has empowered and developed skills for its participants to start building relationships with decision makers, such as the Chief of Police, Human Relations Department of High Point, and Housing Authority of High Point.

The LEAD Academy has instilled the necessary confidence for leaders to speak up in press conferences and advocate in institutions that affect their daily lives such as, schools, workplace, and community forums.
