We believe it is vital that young people learn from business owners and other professionals, so our program is built on engaging community volunteers to INVEST in the city's future workforce.
By linking the world of work with El Paso Schools, we INVOLVE volunteers in preparing the leaders of the future to deliver high-quality, state-certified lesson plans and share real-life experiences with students.
The result: our "ambassadors" INSPIRE and leave a lasting impact on young El Pasoans.
