Adelante’s Mission is to empower Latinx youth to achieve their dreams and contribute
as creative and educated world citizens.

What We Do

Adelante is a non-profit organization in Louisville, Kentucky devoted to empowering Hispanic and Latinx youth. We engage our Achievers and parents in long-term academic, mentoring, and personal enrichment programs. We believe that with proper guidance and support, every student can achieve, whatever that means for them. While we endorse higher education as the surest tool for success, we recognize there are various paths toward successful and fulfilling lives. Our programs are designed to encourage the holistic development of every Achiever in close partnership with our parents and families, focusing on five core pillars.


Educational preparedness, career exploration, community service, cultural awareness, and personal and social development. All Adelante programs and services are provided free of charge to our Achievers and families.

Despite the weather and snow, we had a great time with Centre College professor, Satty Echeverría and her students that came all the way from Danville, Ky to work with the Adelante Achievers! This workshop was focused on understanding the official and external narratives about (Afro-)Latinidad to undo harmful assumptions and perspectives that dominate everyday life. Students in very creative ways, co-created a mapping of (Afro-)Latinidad in which they imagined together what it means to recognize one’s identities.Big thank you to everyone who participated in this workshop!!A pesar del clima y la nieve, la pasamos muy bien con la profesora de Center College, Satty Echeverría y sus estudiantes que vinieron desde Danville, Ky. para trabajar con los Achievers de Adelante!
