We Support a
Thriving Community

Middle school and high school can be a confusing time for any teenager; however, when you believe your opportunities for success are limited, it’s even harder to feel motivated.


Latinx students learn in our programs that college is indeed possible, leadership skills can be learned and experienced, and a successful future is definitely within their reach.

“Al Éxito is a support system for parents and the youth and guides them to success, which has always inspired me to be a part of positively impacting my community.”

Our Approach

Al Éxito after-school programs and college preparedness opportunities help Latinx students to connect culturally and individually with others while learning success-nurturing behaviors — that means both encouraging and demonstrating behaviors that have been proven to lead to more positive outcomes.


Research has shown that this approach increases self-confidence and dramatically improves school attendance, academic achievements, parental involvement, and high school graduation rates.

Additionally, our students receive opportunities to explore post-secondary education and career training along with individual support with college application, financing, and preparedness processes. Combined with improved academic performance, a deeper understanding of college and career opportunities, these experiences increase the number of Latinx student that enroll in and graduate from training schools and with high education degrees.

Al Éxito facilitators are:


We know that as a minority ethnic population within most Iowa schools, Latinx students often lack the confidence for asking for extra help from teachers. We celebrate the Latino culture while building students’ confidence and leadership skills.


We specialize in identifying the unique skills of every student — we help students see their own special skills and encourage them to use them toward academic achievements now and into the future.


We believe our focus on success-nurturing behavior benefits student by helping them achieve more positive results today which fosters increased self-confidence for success tomorrow.

“Al Éxito is a community, a family, that has taught me how to be myself and to love myself…I was finally able to break free from my own shell and realize I was capable of so much.”
