The core purpose for the MANO Project (My Access to Network Opportunities) is to connect, build and develop young leaders of color who share a passion for serving and strengthening their communities.

We build trusting relationships with organizations and federal agencies to provide professional development and training opportunities for people of color pursuing college degrees or recently graduated.

Hispanic Access internship and fellowship programs offer unique work experiences and competitive packages for candidates. Programs provide extensive training, mentoring and professional development support to ensure that students have the tools, tips and knowledge to be outstanding contributors, navigate challenges and make the most of their experience. Through site visits, webinars, mentorship connections and links to the Hispanic Access and MANO network, participants are strongly positioned for success and high impact.

All programs are paid and many offer transportation stipends, free on-site housing or housing stipends.
