Adelante Youth Alliance's mission is to educate and empower youth to develop their academic, career and leadership potential. AYA has been instrumental in assisting thousands of youth, on the verge of failing in school, progress to the next grade level, complete high school, identify and implement career plans, advance to college or trade training, secure employment, and become productive members of their communities – willing and able to give back.
