Young Professionals Advisory Council

YPAC Newsletter

Mujeres Young Professionals Advisory Council (YPAC) was established by Mujeres’ Board of Directors to form an integral part of the future development of the organization. The YPAC was designed for professionals 35 years and younger to serve as ambassadors of Mujeres to increase awareness and support of Mujeres work with Latinas and families among their peers.

YPAC members provide Mujeres with valuable support through friendraising and fundraising. Activities include identifying new donors, promoting special events throughout the year or hosting YPAC’s own events. Funds that the YPAC helps to raise will be used to maintain Mujeres’ seven program areas. YPAC will empower members by providing an opportunity to strengthen philanthropic and community leadership skills and creates opportunities for professional networking.

The members of the Mujeres Young Professionals Advisory Council serve as ambassadors to increase awareness and support Mujeres Latinas en Acción's work by promoting and creating philanthropic activities that increase community leadership and involvement. Their endeavors directly benefit Mujeres' programs and policy initiatives which seek to empower Latinas by preventing violence against women, increasing access to reproductive health resources, and advocating for comprehensive immigration reform.
