“Unidas” is the feminization of the Spanish word for “United.” This award-winning after-school program gives high school aged young women the opportunity to give away $5,000/semester to one non-profit organization that supports the type of social change that is most important to them. Throughout the program, participants gain hands-on experience in community issues, leadership, social justice, and grant-making – all centered around helping to improve the quality of life for women and girls in Southern Arizona.
