How We Impact the Community

Mariposa is a program of the Napa County Office of Education, supporting over 1,500 Latine and non-traditional students since 2010.

Every year, Mariposa serves approximately 150 youth in 11 middle and high schools across the city of Napa and American Canyon. Evidence-based curriculum is delivered through weekly one-hour restorative group mentoring sessions consisting of 15-20 students.

The program aims to foster positive youth development, build-in protective factors, increase healthy choices, and gain leadership/advocacy skills, and school engagement.

Mariposa has received various recognitions locally and statewide, including the Blue Ribbon Award (2012) from the Child Abuse Prevention Council of Napa County for preventing teen dating violence and sexual assault amongst Latine youth, The Ruby Award (2015) from Soroptimist International of Napa for its work on empowering young women, and the Golden Bell Award (2017) from the California School Boards Association for student mentoring and family engagement.

Mariposa has allowed me to feel more comfortable with my body. There’s something so powerful about this group, young women come together to talk about their insecurities while also validating and uplifting each other’s experiences.
