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 from 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.

Educational Preparedness

Encourage our youth to set and meet high personal, educational, and career goals.

Career Exploration

Las vidas de nuestros hermanos Afro americanos importan. Adelante apoya y solidariza con nuestros hermanos Afro americanos. El abuso y la destrucción de cuerpos Afro americanos y de diferente color de piel no es nuevo en nuestro país; Es tan antiguo como nuestros cimientos. Lo nuevo es la evidencia del video, demasiado evidente para continuar ignorando. Nuestros hermanos Afro americanos mueren en las calles a manos de nuestra policía, mientras que nuestros hijos mueren en jaulas bajo custodia de ICE. Estos no son asuntos separados.

Condenamos el racismo y la inequidad estructural incorporados en nuestros sistemas en todos los niveles que inevitablemente conducen a la discriminación y la muerte. Condenamos la muerte de Breonna Taylor, David McAtee, George Floyd y muchos otros. Apoyamos la justicia y el verdadero cambio sistémico. Si la injusticia y la desigualdad son consecuencias naturales de los sistemas que hemos diseñado, nuestro diseño es defectuoso y nuestros sistemas están rotos.

Continuamos luchando por la equidad educativa y la oportunidad para los estudiantes latinx. Pero no podemos quedarnos de brazos cruzados en la educación y no preocuparnos por lo que sucede en la policía. La injusticia en cualquier lugar es una amenaza para la justicia en todas partes, y el silencio es complicidad.

Black lives matter. Adelante stands in support and solidarity with our black siblings. The abuse and destruction of black and brown bodies is not new in our country; it is as old as our foundations. What is new is the video evidence, too blatant to continue to ignore. Our black brothers die in the streets at the hands of our police while our children die in cages in ICE custody. These are not separate issues.

We condemn the racism and structural inequity built into our systems at every level that inevitably lead to discrimination and death. We condemn the deaths of Breonna Taylor, David McAtee, George Floyd, and so many others. We stand in support of justice and of true, systemic change. If injustice and inequality are natural consequences of the systems we’ve designed, our design is flawed and our systems are broken.

We continue to fight for educational equity and opportunity for Latinx students. But we cannot sit idly by in education and not be concerned about what happens in policing. Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere, and silence is complicity.

Querida Familia de Adelante.

Esta es la tercera sesión de nuestro Programa Virtual de Mentoría y Enriquecimiento para Estudiantes de Adelante.

El propósito de este taller fue dar a conocer la importancia de cuidar nuestra salud mental y demostrar cómo podemos cuidar nuestra salud mental a través del arte. Lo que esperaba lograr es que las personas cuiden su salud mental y reciban al menos una forma de hacerlo.

Dear Adelante Family.

This is the third session of our Virtual Mentoring and Enrichment Program for Adelante Students
The purpose of my workshop was to bring awareness of the importance of taking care of our mental health and to demonstrate how we can take care of our mental health through art. What I was hoping to achieve is for individuals to take care of their mental health and be given at least one way of doing so.
