The “Juntos” program (pronounced: Who-n-tos) provides Latino parents and 8-12th grade students with knowledge and resources to graduate from high school and gain access to college. This hands-on program is taught in either English or Spanish and meets for 2½ hours once a week for six weeks in the evenings. Juntos also uses success coaches and college age-mentors to provide weekly afterschool clubs and activities with the target students before and after the 6-week program.

25 professionals from the community come and set up booths about their careers at the Kids Club of Jefferson County. Children and their families were able to visit different booths, engage with business professionals and spark interest about future careers. A highlight of the evening included AirLink landing a helicopter in the field next to the club. Youth were then able to sit in the helicopter and see how it operates.
