Since 2000, Spindletop Community Impact Partners, Inc. (formerly Spindletop Charities, Inc.) has invested over $2 million and countless volunteer hours to support YES Prep students and teachers.
Spindletop Community Impact Partners strives to make the city of Houston a better place by leveraging their deep connections with the city’s energy community. They envision a future where children of all ages, backgrounds and upbringings have the resources they need to succeed and realize their full potential.
“Spindletop Community Impact Partners enhances the lives of at-risk youth throughout the greater Houston community, and we know that our investment in YES Prep Public Schools ensures a college ready education starting as early as pre-K for children in our community. We are extremely proud of our more than 20-year partnership with YES Prep. They are a vital resource in our community, providing not only exceptional, quality education for each student, but also basic needs to serve the whole family.” – Lia Vallone, executive director of Spindletop Community Impact Partners, Inc.
Spindletop’s contributions to YES Prep include investing in our literacy efforts, alumni scholarships, building the Spindletop Center for Teaching Excellence at YES Prep’s Home Office, featuring YES Prep at the annual Spindletop Golf Tournament and so much more. Most recently, Spindletop volunteers participated in the Unity in the Community event, assembling hundreds of literacy backpacks for YES Prep elementary students and providing an additional $10,000 grant in support of our literacy efforts.
YES Prep’s results continue to show what students can accomplish when given the right opportunities, resources and support. Thank you to Spindletop Community Impact Partners for providing many more children in Houston access to a high-quality education and for ensuring that our students can succeed in college and pursue lives of opportunity!
