Students are our goal. Each needs a sponsor
Jóvenes Adelante 2021 Class Hopefuls Are at the Door...
If not lining up around the block! The application process opened early for this incoming class. Covid be damned – JA is in the early stages of its most exciting time of the year! This year, 2020, saw JA’s largest application number ever-270-double that of 2019.
Who are these 185 entering round 2? San Miguel residents – regardless of where they go to school – coming fresh out of high school, or 1st year university students. They have high grades and economic need; they are young adults still in the formation stage; they are either the first in their family to strive for university, or are in the first generation within their family (parents did not go to university, perhaps a sibling has.) Whether ultimately admitted to JA or not, each of these students strives to reach a level of education that will forever change their and their families’ social mobility, and by extension their lives.
Whatever the field of chosen study and eventual career path, these young scholars choose higher education. They choose their goals and their path. JA is here to help them at every step of the journey if accepted into the program, and to dramatically improve their chances of success. With financial support, with a mentor, with a computer, with psychological support, with a student and graduate network, with an auxiliary skills program and network, with love, through final credentialing payments, and with a track record of 85% success.
