About Us


Adelante’s mission is to empower Hispanic/Latino youth to achieve their dreams and contribute as creative and educated world citizens.


Our Louisville community has seen a 122% increase in the Hispanic/Latino population over the last decade, and its numbers continue to grow. This diverse Hispanic population contributes to an ever evolving, multi-cultural Louisville, significantly impacting our future as a community. As the number of Hispanics entering the workforce and attending public schools grows, we must consider the unique challenges the Hispanic population is facing.

Adelante Hispanic Achievers was created to address such challenges in our city by empowering Louisville’s Hispanic youth and helping them succeed in four critical area of development: personal, social, cultural, and educational. Adelante was founded in January 2004 by former JCPS school board chair Stephen Imhoff and a core of community leaders who shared the belief that with support and resources, Louisville’s Hispanic students and their families can have a bright future.

“Our goal is to guide our students and support their desire, hope, and ambition to be productive citizens in our community.”

--Stephen Imhoff
Adelante Founder, Immediate Past President and former Board Chairman of Jefferson County Board of Education
