ADELANTE! Latina/o Leadership Program

Adelante! Latino/a Success Program

When you join Adelante, you are making the first step toward becoming a leader! This comprehensive two-year leadership program supports the success of students interested in Latina/o issues. You will receive intensive mentoring from professors, staff, and peer success coaches to ensure that you will reach your academic and career goals. You will have exclusive access to networking and leadership opportunities on and off campus. As a result of their participation, Adelante scholars earn internships, on-campus jobs, scholarships, and other special opportunities.

Three ways to become an Adelante scholar

  • Start in July. Get an early start to college and Adelante by taking a summer math course (only open to students who place into MAT 105-College Algebra).
  • Start in August. Participate in a free four-day summer program that will prepare you to excel in college, allow you to meet your classmates and professors, and give you a first-hand look at your new home at John Jay!
  • Start in the fall. Register for an Adelante Latina/o Studies First Year Seminar and get started on your leadership journey in the fall.
