Our education system is broken.
The reasons seem endless, but the results are well-documented. Black and brown students, and students who lack financial resources, are left to languish in ill-equipped schools. Instead of creating opportunities for these talented students to thrive socially, spiritually, and professionally, this broken system often leads them to failure and extreme despair.
The fact that only 1 in 10 Black, brown, or economically disadvantaged students in Houston is expected to complete a college degree or other post-secondary educational program is nothing less than tragic.
You can be part of the solution.
While the reality of this situation is staggering, Yellowstone Schools are making a drastic difference for our inner city youth. 7 in 10 Yellowstone alumni are on track to complete a post-secondary certification or college degree. Our students are beating the odds every day. They are proof that the color of your skin or the zip code where you live does not and should not determine your outcome.
We have created the Scholars Society as a way for you to join the fight against our broken education system. When you join the society by making a gift, you stand with our scholars. Your gift creates a safe and supportive learning environment, promotes academic excellence, and encourages spiritual growth for students.
Together, we can become part of the solution and heal this broken education system. Join the Scholars Society today!
Depending on your Scholars Society giving level, you may be connected with several Yellowstone scholars throughout the year, though your gift will be pooled for maximum effectiveness to support the entire mission of Yellowstone Schools. Thank you for your generosity!
