“Our founders are proud of us,” said former president Sue Leonard, who remains on the Board of Directors for Jóvenes Adelante. “They created a sustainable model to educate local honors students, who otherwise could not attend university and break the cycle of historic economic disparity into which they were born, and we are taking that a step further with institutional sustainability.”

“I am proud that Jóvenes Adelante raises all of the funding needed for each student before that student enters university, in order to ensure that each student can go the full distance,” said Jóvenes Adelante founder, Betse Davies. “Now, thanks to the good people who support Jóvenes Adelante, we have the Special Stars fund for students who can’t meet us halfway with their finances.” That fund is named in honor of founder Davies.

“I am proud that Jóvenes Adelante helps students with unforeseen economic challenges,” said Susi Beere, Secretary of the Board of Directors, referring to the Susi Beere Emergency Fund.

Jóvenes Adelante has created these, and the Bob Hesdorfor Founder’s Scholarship fund, in order to provide more scholarships and to give donors more options, including up to US$7,000 for a five-year scholarship. Donations to Jóvenes Adelante are tax deductible in the US, Mexico, and Canada.

At the “Sweet 16” birthday party, the current Jóvenes Adelante strategic plan will be shared as well as plans for the organization’s future sustainability. The number of applicants will be revealed as well as an invitation to sponsor those students planned for fall admission. And, of course, there will be birthday cake for all!
