Commit to Five

At YES Prep we strive to create an environment that is attractive to future and current teachers, engaging for extraordinary people, and the best place to work in Houston to serve all students. In 2014, YES Prep launched its groundbreaking Commit to Five campaign to encourage every single employee to stay at least five years at YES Prep—longer than the average tenure for any job in the U.S.

“We fundamentally believe that our teachers and staff have the greatest impact on a student’s achievement. Commit to Five is about our staff committing to us and also about the system committing to be a place where everyone sees a compelling future.”
