The East End Scholars Program is committed to supporting the educational needs of area students and has awarded over $230,000 in scholarships the last 9 years. At our Annual  Education Symposium,  we present students with scholarships to bridge industry and education by building an effective workforce. After receiving their scholarships, students are placed in our mentorship program where they are partnered with industry professionals from our community.

East End - My Career Path

East End - My Career Path is a soft-skills program that was developed to provide 11th & 12th grade students with a certification based on social skill learnings and career pathways. The program is currently in the Pilot Stage at Austin High School and Sanchez High School. East End - My Career Path also welcomes business professionals from the community to speak with the students about the career paths they chose, and expose them to various careers in their industry. 

STEM Town USA

STEAM Town USA, in partnership with the The Greater Houston Women’s Chamber of Commerce, provides exposure to 3rd grade girls interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math concepts while encouraging girls to pursue STEAM careers. In 2015, our elementary schools participate in the end-of-year Community Showcase where they competed with other schools for the “Best Place to Live” award. Park Place Elementary took home the “Best Overall Award.”

 Success in education not only guarantees a future for students but the positive growth of business and community. To continue our support of education in Houston's East End we depend on valuable donations from people like you. Make a tax-deductible donation today and become a proud supporter of Houston's success.
