Who We Serve

 

 

Easter Seals Greater Houston is currently celebrating an incredibly successful summer for High School High Tech and Ready to Achieve Mentoring Program (RAMP), our programs in which students with disabilities are presented a mix of learning experiences that promote career exploration and broaden educational horizons.

 

This summer our High School High Tech Program placed a record number of 16 interns! We simultaneously had 15 mentor volunteers for 140 young adults across 9 schools throughout the past year. The majority of those students also went through our Financial Education curriculum, in addition to their regular monthly meetings focused on job skills, social skills, resume building and more.   

 

Earlier this year we held our Mock Interview Days virtually for young adults with disabilities from 7 different schools thanks to the generosity of 25 corporate employees from various industries volunteering their time. The students were able to learn and practice important skills through several rounds of interviews. The participants shared that they feel more confident and better prepared thanks to this experience. 

 

Typically only 56% of students with disabilities graduate from high school, but when enrolled in our High School High Tech Program that success rate jumps to 99%. We are incredibly proud of our 6 students that recently graduated from high school and are pursuing success through community college, trade school or the military.

 

Simply amazing, and we could not do it without you and your phenomenal, continued support! These young adults lives are forever changed – our mission of keeping them in school, showing them a path to independence and creating young adults who will be contributing in our community as adults, living independently, not relying on subsidy and creating and bettering their own lives is in full evidence here! Give today to help transform lives!

Sally Ann is doing her internship at Aww Pet Spa in Missouri City. Over the summer she has been learning how to groom dogs, staying in school and becoming proficient in budgeting her new found income!

From accounting to automation labs, John, a sophomore at Lake Creek High School, has learned about upstream, midstream and downstream during his summer internship with Western Midstream and says “it's a lot more than just digging oil out of the ground and selling it to gas stations.”

Thank you United Way of Greater Houston, The Frees Foundation, and The George Foundation for ensuring these young adults with disabilities will thrive in our community. We sincerely appreciate Aww Pet Spa, Christian Brothers Automotive, CVS Pharmacy, Distinct Abilities Academy, Goodwill, Meals on Wheels Montgomery County, Mercy Goods, Western Midstream, and Zeb's Metal Craft for hosting our incredible interns.
