If you are an undocumented student in New York State, currently in 9th-11th grade, we encourage you to contact us. The 2022 Summer Program is now over, but we are still here to answer questions and build community. Check back in February 2023 for the Summer 2023 application.

What you will gain:

  • A network of friends and mentors

  • Knowledge about College Access, from how to choose a school and apply, to get the most support possible from an institution

  • Experience with Self-Advocacy and Organizing for Social Justice

  • Access to apply for Adelante College Scholarships and Emergency Aid


Every summer we hire a team of dedicated counselors to help us with the Summer Program. To be a counselor, you must be over the age of 20, be committed to immigrant justice, and ideally have personal or family experience with the challenges of being undocumented. Counselors stay with us for the summer program and provide important mentorship. Check back in March for summer 2023's application, and contact us if you would like to join our interest list.


Applying to join us as a student is easy. We first ask you to tell us a bit more about yourself on a written application and to fill out the necessary forms. We are looking for undocumented students who think Adelante will make a real difference in their lives and can commit to the program. Then, a planning committee member will interview you and answer any questions you and your family have.

Once we invite you to join, we will ask you and your parent or guardian to sign permission forms in order to secure your spot.
