Pop up Coach seeks to build the social capital of Latina first-gen students by creating opportunities for them to engage with a pipeline of Latina professionals. We strive to create a space for wisdom and advice sharing that will support Latinas integrating into and advancing in the workplace.

how it works? 

Students will have access to coach profiles on a password-protected site. Each coach has a personalized profile inclusive of a short bio, expertise, current location, and availability. HCLP and HYLP students and alumni who complete the Pop up Coach interest form will have access to the site and be able to book meetings with various coaches through the online booking system. Each coach will have a unique link to their calendar with their preferred availability. Students will schedule a time to meet with their coaches. Coaches will receive an email to prepare to meet with their students through their preferred form of communication. After each meeting, students and coaches will be required to fill out a quick evaluation survey.

Pop up coach Successes & Outcomes

To date, Pop up Coach has successfully completed two cycles serving more than 60 students with over 100 meetings completed. One of the goals of Pop up Coach is to create a pipeline for young Latinas to connect with HOPE's extensive Latina network. With this program, participants have met with 20 Latina professionals from fields such as government, law, STEM, and higher education. 18 of those coaches are from HOPE's Leadership Institute alumnae base, and 2 are current HOPE Board Members. Our coaches have dedicated over 80 hours to the participants and the program. Participants have completed Pop up Coach with new internships, job interviews, and social capital.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Jeannette Mayo Gallegos,
HCLP Alumna

The Pop up Coach program has allowed me to speak with someone who has been able to coach me. I've learned about other mentorship programs, scholarships, internship opportunities, what I can do as a student to make sure I am prepared for the workforce after college, networking tips, resume tips, general advice, etc.

Adela Garcia,
HYLP Alumna

It was a wonderful experience to receive support and guidance from two very strong and professional Latina women. Hearing how they were able to maneuver through similar barriers that I faced as a Latina woman reassured me that with the proper guidance I can also overcome these barriers. Each meeting ended with an action plan for me to follow in the future.

Kimberly Salinas,
HCLP Alumna

Being able to connect with these Latinas that are successful in their career has been super inspiring and motivating. As well as building these connections with them on both a professional and friendship level has been so rewarding. I've grown so much in both my personal and professional life with all the amazing tips and feedback these coaches have provided me with.
