LCCT: Restore Education- Marketing and Outreach Specialist
 
 
 
Postsecondary credentials are the gateway to family-supporting wages and the key to breaking the intergenerational transmission of poverty that is prevalent in San Antonio and South Central Texas. To address this critical issue, Restore Education offers a continuum of services in its three programs, Passport to College, Compass, and Fast Pass. The Passport to College program provides at-risk youth across San Antonio (those who are economically disadvantaged, teen parents or former foster youth) who have dropped out of high school, with an opportunity to earn their GED and prepare for college simultaneously. Students are provided with enriched preparation for their GED, including college test preparation and comprehensive college/workforce connection services. The Compass Program provides GED graduates and first generation college students with ongoing support and guidance as they complete their 2- and 4-year degrees at local colleges. These students have access to a personal mentor dedicated to their success, in addition to a designated study area, located next to the college campus, staffed with tutors and equipped with laptops and textbooks. The Fast Pass program provides free College Readiness workshops for students at low-income high schools. Staff also provides teachers at these high schools with low cost professional development regarding college readiness.
