Adelante Caminantes is Hope’s tutoring program for unaccompanied minors, those young people who travelled without adult accompaniment from Mexico and Central America, fleeing poverty and violence in their home countries. Hope offers a warm welcome, a hot meal, and basic skills instruction every Monday and Wednesday evening.
With strong support from staff and volunteers, the teens move between classrooms receiving bilingual instruction in ESL and life skills. In this supportive environment, students are becoming more confident and open as they learn together.
The name Adelante Caminantes translates to “Onward, Walkers” and reflects Hope Community Center’s support for these young people who have come so far, yet still have a journey ahead as they await the outcome of the deportation process that was triggered when they were detained.
Our hearts are with them. ¡Adelante Caminantes!
