The R.O.S.E Mentorship Program is a national educational initiative created by Ivone De Jesus for Hermandad de Sigma Iota Alpha, Inc.(SIA), and administered by the graduate/alumnae chapters. The program serves as resources for Latinas ages 14-18 and encourages service, scholarship, and personal development in order to create leaders within out communities, while providing the tools necessary to succeed.

The R.O.S.E Mentorship Program aims to:

  • Provide mentorship and programming that will aid in the academic and personal development of young Latinas.

  • Utilize SIA's network of professional Latinas to increase awareness of the Latino culture, while promoting educational excellence and proactive community involvement.

  • Develop leadership qualities and abilities in young Latinas.

Alumnae members serve as mentors and meet with young women throughout the academic year to provide mentorship in the following areas: relationship building, academics, cultural awareness, leadership, personal and professional development, and community activism. (Please note: Although the program is geared towards young Latinas, it is open to all young women. Hermandad de Sigma Iota Alpha, Inc. does not condone discrimination based on race, national origin, religion, creed, or sexual orientation.)
