Adelante Youth Program

Who is the Program for?

Adelante is designed to excite and support students through the help of a structured program. Participants develop key relationships in order to develop their motivation and vision to finish high school and pursue further education/training beyond. LAUP is currently recruiting 8th-10th graders for the Adelante Program.

Where and When Will the Program Take Place

Students will meet weekly on Wednesday nights from 5:30 – 7:00. Meetings will be held at LAUP, 96 W. 15th Street, Room 103, Holland, Michigan or at specially planned locations.

What Will Students Do?

At weekly meetings, participants will meet with Hispanic/Latin@ leaders and others from the community who will help them develop leadership skills and an understanding of different careers. Students will also participate in various service projects that address a need in the community. Additionally, students will plan the Annual LAUP Hispanic Youth Leadership Conference. Students who successfully complete the program will receive special recognition.
