The Juntos Program empowers Latino youth at the 8th-grade level to support each other throughout high school and as they prepare to enter higher education. The program offers four components designed to create a supportive environment in which students can develop life skills, learning skills, and literacy skills for the 21st century.
- Family Engagement: Workshop series and family nights
- 4-H Clubs: Academics, tutoring, life-skill activities and community service
- One-on-One Success Coaching: Provided by an adult who helps youth achieve their goals
- Summer Programming: Summer Academy and local 4-H programming
The Juntos Program was first developed by North Carolina State University in 2007 as the Juntos program, however, it became known as Juntos 4-H in 2015, when the university developed a partnership with National 4-H Council with financial support. This assisted the program to grow in both size and sustainability.
