Donations go toward improving the Juntos program and helping Latino students achieve academic success. Our goal is to help more Latino students get to college and finish college. Your contributions will help us achieve that goal.
The dropout rate for Latino students in North Carolina is 19% and we want to reduce this number. The Juntos program has been making great progress with our students. Students participating in the program have increased motivation to finish high school and pursue higher education. We also provide many resources for the students in order to help them apply to college and for scholarships and financial aid. Our mentors are also a vital part of the Juntos Program. The mentors are great for answering questions about application essays or steps in the financial aid process as they have experienced similar things.
STEM fields are becoming more and more popular in the workforce and we want Juntos students to gain experience in those fields. Students are exposed to engineering tactics in their 4-H clubs, such as bridge-building activities. and earthquake engineering activities.
Summer Academy is a week-long program at NC State University where students get to experience college life. Students are exposed to college-level courses and learn how to apply to college. They also learn tips and tricks on doing well and staying motivated in college. Summer Academy is a great way for students to envision themselves going to college.
A gift to Juntos can change a student’s life
When you donate to Juntos, you are not only giving money but giving a student an opportunity to succeed in high school and beyond.
- With $20 of your donation, we can provide a STEM kit for one of the Juntos youth. This kit allows youth to get more involved with computer science and teaches them how to code.
- With $50 of your donation, we can provide healthy snacks for one student for an entire year of 4-H club meetings. 4-H clubs are big on providing youth with a base on which they can build a habit of healthy living and long-term health.
- With $100 of your donation, we can help provide field trip transportation for our Juntos youth. In order for our youth to experience the outside world, we provide them with opportunities to take the learning experience out of the usual high school setting. Some examples of the field trips they take are: college visits, community service trips, and recreational activities.
- With $480 of your donation, we can send one of the Juntos youth to Summer Academy, a week-long college experience provided to rising 9th-12th graders. This program comes at no cost for the participant, but Juntos is responsible for picking up the cost of all the materials that the Juntos youth will need during said experience.
Thank you for supporting a good cause!
