"I really love Adelante and after I joined my grades went up a LOT higher. I would LOVE to come back. Thanks for letting me join."

Adelante programs are free of charge to our students and their families. All programs include parent involvement: workshops, presentations, and individual support.
Mentoring and Enrichment:
This program provides weekly workshops on Saturday mornings with experiential learning opportunities and college visits to middle and high school Latinx students in the Louisville area. Each weekend throughout the academic year we engage presenters to share their knowledge and expertise with our group of 6th – 12th grade Achievers. We also take our Achievers on field trips to various enrichment activities within the community to enhance students’ understanding of their options after graduating from high school.
This Saturday program is held at our home base, Douglass Blvd. Christian Church and the Americana Community Center. Click here for the Douglass calendar and click here for the Americana calendar.
College Readiness and College Corps:
The College Corp program focuses on preparing junior and senior high school Latinx students to access and succeed in college. In this program, we pair students with local professionals who become the students’ mentors for the length of the school year.
This program meets once a month on a Saturday, offering workshops where students and mentors learn about college applications, scholarships, and the college experience in general. Students also visit up to 4 colleges each academic year.

Virtual Learning & Homework Help:
This program matches Adelante students with volunteer tutors from all over the world to work together in learning and improving skills. The program takes place entirely online, meaning that tutors and students work together from the comfort of their own homes. Virtual Learning offers continued educational opportunities to Adelante students throughout the school year and continues into the summer months.
Students and volunteers can contact Juliana at [email protected] if you are interested in participating.
This program offers a series of interest-specific learning communities for Adelante’s students to explore new skills and hobbies together. Students are provided a platform where they can share their passions and interests alongside their Adelante peers. Our Achievers discover new information and grow from one another while establishing a tighter sense of community and connection in the Adelante Clubs.
Any students interested in joining either club should contact Juliana Rodríguez at [email protected].
The Ambassadors program is a leadership opportunity for Adelante students in their junior and senior years of high school. These students step up as role models in the Saturday Mentoring & Enrichment program, leading groups and games with younger Achievers. Adelante Ambassadors also provide input and feedback in the curriculum planning process, represent the student voice at various events throughout the city, and organize additional community service opportunities to give back to our community. Ambassadors directly mentor our Junior Ambassadors.
Students interested in the program can contact Christian King at [email protected].
The Junior Ambassadors program is a new opportunity for students in the 9th and 10th grades. In this program, Junior Ambassadors take on leadership roles within the Mentoring and Enrichment program, assisting our Ambassadors and Adelante staff when needed. The goal of this program to prepare students for future leadership roles both within Adelante and in their future lives.
Students interested in becoming a Junior Ambassador can contact Juliana Rodríguez at [email protected].
