Empowering the Potential in Underserved Populations
Our mission is to prepare underserved students to flourish by providing integrated learning experiences, social-emotional support, and refinement of 21st-century skills necessary to embrace the Future of Work.
Our vision is to ensure inclusive and equitable education and foster lifelong opportunities for all underserved populations as part of SDG Goal 4.
SUSTAINABLE GOAL DEVELOPMENT
Education enables upward socioeconomic mobility and is a key to escaping poverty.
What we do
The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on schooling is a “generational catastrophe.” Before the pandemic, progress was already slow and insufficient to achieve the education targets. School closures caused by the pandemic have had devastating consequences for children’s learning and well-being.
The spring 2021 STAAR results showed that only 43% of all students met grade level in reading, and 35% met grade level in math. The most vulnerable students and those unable to access supplemental learning are at increased risk of never returning to school and not attending post-secondary education.
EDUCATION UNBOUND'S UNIQUE APPROACH STARTS BY ASKING THE GREATER QUESTIONS:
"WHAT PROBLEMS DO YOU WANT TO SOLVE IN THE WORLD?" SOLVING THE GREATER CHALLENGE GIVES YOUNG PEOPLE PURPOSE AND ENGAGEMENT TO ALTER THEIR DESTINIES.
THIS IS ESPECIALLY TRUE FOR OUR STUDENTS AS WE REACH THOSE NOT CURRENTLY WELL-SERVED IN OUR EDUCATION SYSTEMS. YOUNG PEOPLE WANT TO SOLVE PROBLEMS BEYOND THEIR SCHOOL WALLS.
