In 1997, the founding staff of Restore Education began working with inner-city high school students to create unique pathways to college. Restore Education officially began in 2008 as the educational outreach branch of a local church. Now, as an independent, non-sectarian 501 (c)(3) organization, Restore Education is committed to helping the youth of San Antonio and its surrounding areas achieve their educational goals. Since 2008, we have helped over 4,000 youth take steps forward in their education and prepare for college.
Why shouldn't a student go forward to college and position their family 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 in order to improve their status not only for themselves, but for those in their family that follow them. - John F. Rhodes, Founder of Restore Education
