Ciencia Puerto Rico (CienciaPR) is a non-profit organization that applies culturally relevant strategies to make science communication, K-12 education, and careers more accessible, particularly to the Latinx community. To this end, the organization involves, empowers and gives voice to its rich and diverse community of more than 14,000 scientists, students, educators, and allies. Through its Seeds of Success program, middle school and high school girls throughout Puerto Rico have the opportunity to (1) explore activities and careers in STEM; (2) connect with Latina role models and mentors; and (3) develop leadership through STEM outreach projects that impact their communities. IF/THEN® is supporting the Seeds of Success: IF/THEN® Edition, which includes a 1:1 online mentoring program, a virtual Latina Women in STEM Collection, and the “Juntas Podemos” webinar series to inspire the future Latina pioneers in STEM.
