At the ¡Adelante! U. S. Education Leadership Fund, our programs focus on creating critical conversations that are not happening enough or not happening at all, in our communities.

The Adelante! U.S. Education Leadership Fund is one of only a handful of non-profit organizations in the U.S. that are strictly devoted to delivering this specific type of program to minorities, specifically Latino undergraduate students. Our program directly addresses low-attainment rates by providing Latino college students with the knowledge, tools, and connections needed during their academic careers in order to gain and be successful beyond their college degrees. Without programs like ours, much of this important information remains inaccessible to Latino students who often take longer to graduate or simply drop out of college. Since 1999, we have helped thousands of students with leadership and professional development programs like our Annual Leadership Institute, awarded more than $1.5 million in scholarships, and placed many in corporate internships across the country. We strongly believe that ¡Adelante! is quickly positioning itself to become a national leader as a "go-to" pipelines for diverse talent for Corporate America, the Federal and Non-profit Sector, and institutions of higher learning across our great nation.
