“The people of Restore Education are not only advisors or mentors, but to me they are also like family. No matter what, they always pushed me to be better than I was before, and they motivated me all the time telling me that I had a bright future and that things are possible.”
“Restore Education made a huge impact in my life. I passed all of my GED tests in less than a year and walked the stage in June. Now, I am a student at St. Philip’s College working on my basics so that I can join the Navy.”
“A few years back, I was sitting at home, with no diploma or GED and no idea of where I wanted to go with my life. Now I find myself with a GED and Associate’s degree in hand and countless opportunities before me just waiting to be taken. Before I was unsure of what my future held, now I am confident that as long as I work hard enough, everything will turn out great. I am reenlisting in the army and am excited about pursing my dreams.”
Postsecondary credentials are key to family-supporting wages and improving the economic health of our community. Yet, right now in San Antonio, 1 in 4 adults is without a high school diploma. Some students leave school to support their families, some face homelessness, many are young parents, and still others face past trauma. At Restore Education, we believe that no matter the circumstance, everyone deserves the opportunity to improve their lives through education. Why shouldn’t a student go forward to college and position their families to benefit from the opportunities that are afforded anyone who is willing to work as hard as they are? These students with limited resources and life circumstances negotiate a very hard pathway and make tough choices to advance their education for themselves and those in their family that follow. We believe they deserve partners in the community to open these doors and put them on the most effective pathway to realizing their potential.
Our mission is to transform the at risk youth and adults of San Antonio into successful college and career-ready students so that they can achieve the future they deserve as self-supporting adults, role models as parents, and as contributing members of the community.
Generous volunteers and donors are at the heart of all we do. Your gift of time, financial support, or both puts at-risk students on a pathway to a life-sustaining career. Please consider partnering with us to ensure that at-risk students who turn to Restore Education will have access to the education they need to reach their full potential. Together, we can create brighter futures for our students, their families, and our community.
