The Hispanic Debutante Association of Fort Worth is a non-profit organization. Our main goal is to encourage Hispanic students to complete high school and continue their education in an accredited two or four year-college, university or vocational school. We aid in this endeavor by providing social, cultural awareness, exposure to business leaders, and financial support in obtaining a higher education.
