By 2020, 65% of all jobs in Houston will require education beyond a high school diploma. Meanwhile, 25% of Harris County's 9th graders are at-risk of dropping out.
LEAD's mission is to transform at-risk middle school students with its experiential program that includes an in-school character curriculum, one-to-one mentorship, community service, and summer wilderness adventures.
Houston's bright future depends on a significant investment in its most precious resource - Children.
So, it's Time to LEAD! - a fundraising event (sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas & Mutual Of Omaha) at the best new venue in town with free cold beer, music by The Will Van Horn Trio (feat. members of Robert Ellis' band) and kid-friendly activities - is happening on Sunday, May 7th, and for an excellent cause!
Please join us to support the charity and have a great time. There's no better way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
