Program Description

Over the last decade, our Latinx student population in Louisville has increased by more than 300%. These students represent the fastest-growing demographic in Jefferson County and will become the driving force in our city's long-term economic health and cultural vibrancy in the coming years. The success of our welcoming city will be closely tied to the success and well-being of our diverse Latinx community; we must ensure these students have every opportunity and resource they need to succeed.

Adelante Hispanic Achievers was created specifically to support and empower these individuals, Louisville's Latinx youth and their families, helping them succeed in four critical areas 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 resources and guidance, every Latinx student could achieve her dreams.
