The 2019-2020 program year was unprecedented given the challenges of navigating the COVID-19 global pandemic. Although we were unable to complete all scheduled programming due to school closures, we were able to complete all Success Sessions and a portion of our Leadership Series. Below is a summary of program highlights including survey results from the Success Sessions.


  • Hosted eight Success Sessions at UT-Dallas reaching more than 1,000 students
  • Completed two scheduled Leadership Series before ending due to school closures
  • Delivered programming to 28 North-Texas area school campuses, representing seven school districts
  • Engaged 25 business and community leaders as panelists
  • Produced outstanding student survey results (see below)
  • Welcomed Lewisville ISD to our list of school partners
