Take our short survey
Research shows that Latino youth are at greatest risk for dropping out of school between the 9th and 10th grades. The Juntos Program reduces this risk by bringing together cohorts of 8th grade youth to support each other for 3-5 years as they enter high school and prepare together for higher education. The multifaceted partnerships between Extension’s 4-H and FCS agents, school and college administrators and staff, and other community volunteers are what makes the Juntos Program a sustainable success in many communities across the US.
A four-part series:

2. Sort out the stores
3. Advertising and Returns
