2020 - Before we could get the year up and running, COVID19 pandemic arrived in the United States causing all business and program closures on March 13th . We were able to switch gears quickly and implement virtual online classes via Zoom in order to support and keep in touch with our community students and ambassadors.
March 2020, Virtual online classes were implemented to support students and family while learning at home. As of June 1st, the state of Texas slowly move toward reopening and we continue closely monitoring for the safety of our students. Our summer camps were moved to hybrid camps which included virtual and onsite. Our summer 2020 DiscoverU21 Vision tour to San Francisco, CA has been postponed until it is safe to travel with our group of students and volunteers. We are all in this together and we will come out stronger and COVID19 will not stop us!
