About Adelante

Adelante has been providing opportunities for kids to further their education for many years. This year, more than 40 middle school students join us at the Lawrence Y to study for entrance exams and prepare for the process of applying to high school. In addition to studying, they learn great skills such as public speaking and critical thinking. These students, like many before them, are high achievers and hard workers. We are so proud that they are part of our YMCA.

Each spring, our 8th graders will be accepted into some great schools. Many of these students will receive much needed financial aid from their schools; however there is still a gap for many of these families. Through fundraising events and our annual campaign, we help fill that gap. This school year, the YMCA awarded $45,350 in scholarship assistance to 37 students, in grades 9-12. These students are attending Phillips Academy, Central Catholic, Presentation of Mary, St. Johns Prep, Pingree, Notre Dame Cristo Rey and other great schools. Program Highlights
