Building the life of your dreams doesn’t mean you need to do it alone, especially within the #WeAllGrow community. We’re highlighting 6 of our Amigahood Circles for you to join and connect with Latinas online who share the same interests as you.
Amigahood Circles are the heartbeat of our Amigahood community. If it’s your first time hearing about our virtual comunidad, you can learn more about it here. With over 20,000 members, Circles are meant to provide a sense of home and community in this expansive online casita. Led by community members themselves, Circles are subgroups where you can find other Amigas who live near you, have similar interests, connect on a shared identity, or offer valuable thought leadership. There are over 60 Amigahood Circles to date led by impactful Latinas & Femme Latines, como tú! Explore the many opportunities available, and cultivate your Amigahood through IRL meet-ups, virtual cafecitos, and an online space to be your whole self.
We’ve highlighted a few for you to start exploring!
