About the Panelists:

• Teach for America – Teach For America recruits outstanding recent college graduates, graduate students, and professionals – of all academic majors and career backgrounds – who commit two years to teach in urban and rural public schools. Our corps members become lifelong leaders in the effort to make a great education, and the opportunities that come with it, a reality for all students. Teach For America’s network in the 2012-13 school year includes 10,400 corps members teaching in 46 regions across the country and nearly 28,000 alumni working in education and many other sectors to create the systemic changes that will help end educational inequity.

• City Year - City Year is a national non-profit that partners with public schools throughout the country to help struggling students get back on track. City Year deploys 17 – 24 year old individuals who passionately serve as tutors, mentors and role models to students from third grade to ninth grade. Join us to help close the achievement gap and ensure all students have a chance of graduating from high school and attending college.

• YES Prep Public Schools -YES Prep Public Schools exists to increase the number of low-income Houstonians who graduate from a four-year college prepared to compete in the global marketplace and committed to improving disadvantaged communities.
