“If you have come here to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.”

The Mariposas community is based in Chapel Hill, North Carolina with the mission of facilitating a space for Latinx youth, their families, and local Latinx educators to exchange experiences, find solidarity, and pursue personal growth as a collective.

The Mariposas Scholarship Fund is a true community led effort that empowers everyone involved- parents, youth and awardees.

¡Si se puede!

Mariposas parents are experts who rely on each other as they share experiences, knowledge, and wisdom. They are also at the core of the Mariposas Scholarship Fund.

We are a community, a family
