When Latinx families in Iowa talk about education and their hopes for their children’s future, they often say “salir adelante” to describe moving forward to reach goals. This Spanish phrase also provides the perfect name for a new, culturally tailored, research-based, and evidence-informed curriculum that promotes career and college readiness among Latinx youth and their families.
ISU Extension and Outreach delivers “¡Salir Adelante! Caminos a Nuestro Futuro (Pathways for Our Future)” in partnership with community-based organizations and volunteers. The curriculum affirms and builds upon knowledge, experiences, and strengths of Latinx families and connects them to information and resources to reach their goals.
