Education Initiative

The education incorporates two main focuses as it works to help the lives of local students. One part is working with the AISD student refugee population, helping these students acclimate to America and be successful in classes. The second part is a mentoring program with 16-19 year olds getting their GED. Learn more about the Education Initiative here.
