¡Adelante! America Youth Leadership Program

This youth leadership development program is a collaborative effort between LULAC and AT&T for underserved youth to encourage participants to conduct community service projects, meet with positive role models and explore alternatives to violence and crime. The program works with Latino youth to cultivate optimism, build resilience, and improve academic skills with the goal of successful high school completion. Mentoring programs are crucial to help motivate youth that reside in underrepresented communities. Currently, Fort Vancouver High School in Vancouver, WA is the first site in the Pacific Northwest to have this youth leadership program during the school year.

Scholarship Opportunities

Through our partnership with the Hispanic Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce we are able to grow opportunities for student scholarships. Each dollar we raise for scholarships is matched 100% by the Hispanic Metropolitan Chamber!  Several thousands of dollars have already been given to students in southwest Washington. If you are interested in donating funds for student scholarships, please contact Diana Avalos-Leos at

The Mission of the League of United Latin American Citizens is to advance the economic condition, educational attainment, political influence, housing, health and civil rights of the Hispanic population of the United States.
