SJLI’s Urban Scholars program expands to Houston, TX
We are thrilled to announce that SJLI’s Urban Scholars program will soon expand into the city of Houston, Texas. In February, Houston City Council voted to approve the partnership, enabling us to serve approximately 250 students in the Houston Independent School District. SJLI will design and implement the program in partnership with the Houston chapter of My Brother’s Keeper, an initiative launched by the Obama administration to support academic achievement for boys and men of color.
Over the coming months, we will meet with Houston city officials, leaders in education and community leaders to customize our Urban Scholars program and ensure our curriculum remains relevant for the unique needs of local students
