Proyecto MoLE

MoLE offers a year round program with activities that promote our three main values: academic achievement, personal development and cultural pride. Our mission is to inspire, prepare and mobilize Latino youth as leaders in their communities while building upon the foundation of family and culture.

After School Program

The core component of MoLE is its after school tutoring and support services at local Tacoma schools. The programs are designed to provide participants with the resiliency to overcome challenges, achieve their goals, develop healthy relationships and become socially responsible and involved members of their community.

This year’s summit will be held on Friday, May 6th at University of Puget Sound from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm.

Deffered Action

On June 15, 2012 President Obama announced the beginning of a temporary form of immigration protection called “deferred action” (DACA) to undocumented individuals, ages 15-30 who came to the United States as children. In addition, DACA grantees receive employment authorization (“work permits”). On August 18, 2012 Proyecto MoLE partnered with two local immigration attorneys to provide one of Tacoma-Pierce County’s first DACA informational workshops reaching 188 attendees. Since then Proyecto MoLE has provided additional workshops reaching a total of 500 individuals and assisted more than 50 eligible youth and young adults in becoming DACA approved.
