Latinitas is a local non profit organization whose mission is to empower Latina youth through media & technology programs. Every spring and fall, we host a Saturday conference for girls and this fall's theme is entrepreneurship.

We are currently looking for volunteers with background in entrepreneurship, marketing, branding, etc. to assist at our Start Up Chica Conference on Saturday, October 22nd.

This all day event will teach girls (9-18 years old) how to develop their own entrepreneur venture ideas from start to pitch by creating a business plan and marketing campaign with the assistance of mentors with the end of day goal to present to a panel of judges.

We're hoping to recruit professionals to be coaches for the girls during the morning and/or afternoon sessions. We're also seeking lunchtime career presenters where you would sit down with the girls during their lunch hour (12-1:30) and have informal but valuable conversations via a speed mentoring set up.

We are also seeking assistance in terms of conference sponsorship or donations for our conference attendees which include goodie bag donation items and special grand prizes for the winners of the end of day business pitches (special prizes have included tickets to an event and tech gadgets).
