This Fall will be a new venture for Communities in Schools Houston as they formalize a partnership with 'The Club.' That's the name the Boys & Girls Club of America uses here in the North Side of Houston. The Y.E.T. building was installed in 2004 for the 38th Super Bowl... in fact, there are two Youth Education Town buildings here in Houston. The other is across the street from my previous assignment at Wheatley High School.
Here at the James Driver Park, the Y.E.T. center has the capacity to serve 175 students at one time... My GOAL... make it happen!
I will be both recruiting, and directing Social Service delivery for the children and families in this community to develop a model that can be replicated across the country with BGCA & CIS in partnership. Many of you who are in other Urban Centers across America would be a great resource to me as a sounding board for some of my 'crazy' ideas and even direction or shared wisdom to avoid possible pitfalls in attempting to serve our communities. Feel free to comment here, or in any other way.
JOB ONE: Trust in someone much higher than I.
