Big State

Big Opportunity for Change

Texas is the second largest state in our country with over 5.5 million students. Today, just 21% of Houston Independent School District students living in low-income communities obtain a postsecondary degree, compared to 67% of students from our nation’s most affluent communities. This is not for lack of ambition or talent, but for lack of opportunity and support.

“Before joining OneGoal, I had no idea I was going to attend college. I had concerns about how to pay for it. Thanks to OneGoal, I’m graduating high school and I will be attending college this fall.”

Transformative Results

In Houston, 78% of OneGoal high school graduates enroll in a postsecondary institution and 79% of those persist in their education at the end of the OneGoal program (one year after high school graduation). In order to deliver results for students across the state, we continue to strengthen our organizational culture, attract and empower diverse, talented staff to lead and learn, invest in innovation, and continue to strengthen our financial health.

Meet Alex

“I know the feeling of uncertainty that comes from aspiring for things that you don’t understand and the confidence that comes from knowing you are not alone. I want every student to finish high school with that same confidence and feel the excitement that comes with beginning to see themselves within the spaces they aspire to.”

Alex Dailey
Executive Director
