Generation TX San Antonio
What is Generation TX San Antonio?
The mission of Generation TX San Antonio (GenTX SA) is to create a college-going and career-ready culture in San Antonio in one generation.
What is a GenTXpert?
• A soldier on the ground for promoting the efforts of GenTX SA
• A professional communicator responsible for upkeep of social media page
• A dynamic creator and utilizer of different mediums (videos, flyers, events) that help promote college and career readiness
What does a GenTXpert do?
GenTXperts lead a team of dedicated high school students in monthly meetings to discuss what College & Career Readiness events are important to promote in the upcoming month. By creating a social media calendar each month, the GenTXperts are able to amplify their message across multiple social media platforms and open the door for hundreds of more students. Thousands of students will receive the benefit of every scholarship posting, college-representative visit, and college-going opportunity that is posted through Generation TX San Antonio’s social media pages.
GenTXperts are also responsible for igniting a spirit of passion and dedication towards the college-going path by creating energetic events surrounding the college message through pep rallies, spirit days, and leadership events.
Currently we have a team of 100 students that represent 15 area high schools throughout San Antonio. Each group works closely with the San Antonio Youth Commission and the Trinity University College Advising Corps who act as vital support in collaboration and organization.
Already in the 2014-2015 school year we have led our first Voice of the Youth Leadership Training at café commerce, where we saw over 50 students and several key leaders from San Antonio’s business, communications, political, and musical community come together to share the message of professional development, compassionate action, and selfless service in the workplace. April 4th we led the College Means Opportunity Leadership Training once again at café commerce, this time welcoming leaders from educational institutions and college students, who communicated the importance of being prepared for the transition to college. Currently we are developing partnerships for summer engagement opportunities that will allow our students to give back during their time away from school.
