Mariposa


Mariposa

What We Do:

We provide a space for all young women in Napa to learn about and develop tools to navigate sensitive issues such as body image, relationships, and substance-use prevention strategies. With more than 90% of our participants identifying as Latinx, we appreciate the opportunity to provide them with this critical education.

Mariposa wants to build our youths’ confidence, and provide opportunities to validate their multiple cultural identities and experiences through art. Our ballet folklorico, “folkloric dance,” program brings professional dance instructors to teach youth traditional dances from Latin America. Students learn about historic North and Central America regions through costumed dances that reflect the traditions of indigenous cultures. Additionally, students perform and tell the stories behind the dances at community events. This project has been a staple in uniting Mariposa students and their families, and for providing opportunities that inspire them to be active leaders in their communities.


Other Ways to Help:

  • Become a volunteer co-facilitator
  • Be a guest speaker
  • Repost/share Mariposa social media content
  • Provide gift cards to fund group bonding activities
  • Provide in-kind donations of food for groups
  • Donate craft supplies

Testimonial:

Mariposa is a phenomenal support for our students. They explore how to use their voice and agency for positive change, both personally and in their communities. It provides a safe place for growth and connection.
