  • Mission:
  • The mission of CHIC CHICANA is to prepare high school youth for the future and increase their self-confidence through a program in modeling, dance, public speaking, CPR Certification, mentoring, career exploration, leadership development, financial planning, community service, golf, tennis and health education.

  • History:
  • In the early 1980’s, a Colorado company wanted to make a national commercial in the Rocky Mountains using Latino talent. However, not finding locally trained Latinos, the company went to California. As a result, Don Cardenas pioneered a group of community leaders; Beverly Martinez, Vicki Calvillo, Chris Grimes, Lillian Gutierrez, Ad Lopez, Esther Luben, Olga Passerelli and Joseph Marquez, who formed the first board of directors for Chic Chicana.

    Today, a volunteer board of directors from the local business community continues to operate Chic Chicana as a 501C.3 program. The program has evolved into a leadership development program and is celebrating 28 years of service to the Latino Community.
