JUNTOS 4-H

Juntos 4-H helps Latino youth achieve high school graduation and attend higher education.

Juntos 4-H helps Latino youth (grades 8 – 12) and their families gain the knowledge and skills they need to bridge the gap between high school and higher education. The program was developed by North Carolina State University in 2007. Juntos, meaning ‘together’ in Spanish, was named a ‘Bright Spot in Hispanic Education” by a White House initiative in 2015.

The objectives are:

  • Increase family engagement that leads to students’ educational success
  • Increase the sense of belonging among Latino students and families in their schools and communities
  • Increase Latino student success by improving student attendance and grades, and achieving high school graduation
  • Increase the percentage of Latino students attending higher education Juntos Program Elements

The Juntos program has four components (http://juntosnc.com/about-juntos/).

  1. Juntos Family Engagement via a 6-week workshop series and family events.
  2. Juntos 4-H Clubs with a focus on public speaking, life skills, and community service.
  3. Monthly One-On-One Success Coaching and/or Mentoring by an adult who monitors youth's academics and coaches them to achieve their academic goals.
