Partnership program prepares students for the future with practical job skills

Two Texans Can Academies students are among the first to graduate from the Texas Works Path to Success program, marking their ownership of their success and plans for the future.

The Houston-based pilot program is designed to give high school seniors – as well as adults – a leg up on their future in the workforce. The program includes job-readiness training, wraparound services promoting success, and work-based learning. Texans Can – Houston North is one of four Houston schools participating.

“It’s an honor and a privilege to have two of our students be among the first to graduate from this pilot program,” said Justin Reyes, principal at Texans Can Academies – Houston Southwest. “Their dedication to their future is admirable, and I have no doubt that both students can look forward to rewarding and fruitful careers.”

The students’ completion demonstrates what is possible when students are given the opportunity to succeed.

“We see it frequently at Texans Can Academies,” Reyes said. “When at-risk students are presented with ways to successfully move from an educational setting and into the workforce, they will excel. That is at the heart of our mission here, as well as the Texas Works program. We want to make sure every student, no matter the difficulties they may face, is presented with ways they can transition into a life-long rewarding career.”

Reyes also hopes others can take advantage of the school and the pilot program in the future.

“While it is important to take a moment and celebrate the accomplishments of these two students, they serve as a shining example of the potential of all students at Texans Can Academies.”
