DEVELOPING LEADERS

THAT WORK FOR PUERTO RICO 

Mentes Puertorriqueñas en Acción (MPA) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit lead by active young adults immersed in civic initiatives for social change in Puerto Rico. Our mission is to empower a network of young Agents of Change who generate inclusive and effective change for Puerto Rico.

 

“We are youth that made Puerto Rico our lives project, and we are looking for others that would like to do the same.”  

Who we are?

Programs

To mend the breach in civic engagement in Puerto Rico, MPA has created programs geared towards college students and young professionals.

Throughout the year, we hold events to discuss relevant issues for our generation. We often hold forums, round-table conversations and panels to exchange experiences and discuss ideas about Puerto Rico's social realities and foster networking.
