Restoring Potential Through Education
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.
