HISPA Launch Event Proves to be Successful

HISPA (Hispanics Inspiring Students’ Performance and Achievement), a national non-profit organization dedicated to providing positive Hispanic role models for young students, held a successful launch event on Tuesday, September 16th. The event was held to spotlight the group’s national mission and its New Jersey program. The kick-off marked the start of the organization’s “100 Role Models in 100 Hours” initiative, an effort designed to enlist 100 New Jersey area mentors before the close of the week.

Numerous organizations and individuals pledged to join HISPA’s efforts, bringing an immediate total of 57 new role models. HISPA’s Role Model Bureau is a national network of role models and resources that will showcase the participants’ educational experiences, careers, and ethnic backgrounds. HISPA encourages Hispanic professionals to become active role models by visiting schools and sharing their educational and career experiences with students in an effort to inspire academic performance and achievement.

HISPA is also teaming up with existing organizations that have mentoring programs. In New Jersey, HISPA is working with Hudson County-based Save Latin America’s “Reaching Our Dreams” program. Organizations such as: AT&T - HACEMOS, MERCK - Merck Hispanic Organization (MHO), PSE&G – ADELANTE, CHUBB - CHUBB Hispanic and Latino Employee Network (CHLEN), Microsoft - HOLA), Professional Organizations (NSHMBA NJ Chapter, LISTA NJ and NY Chapters), USHAA, DANR, and LatinosNJ.com have pledged to provide role models.
