Our Mission Statement
The mission of MOSTE is to empower girls from underserved areas of Los Angeles County to become the next generation of college educated women. Our vision is to be an agent of positive change and successfully graduate all of our girls from 4-year colleges, preparing them for professional careers and positions of leadership within their communities. MOSTE recognizes the importance of offsetting the negative pressures that begin early in girls’ lives. From 7th grade through high school, MOSTE utilizes programs that combine personal growth with academic skill-building to create a “smart girl” culture, while firmly believing change happens at the individual level with one girl at a time.
