These young people will become the thinkers and doers of their generation. They are our future. We are proud that the University of Texas at Austin is taking an active role in transforming their lives.
My daughter Ana Manoela Martinez participated last year and she had the time of her life. She is now accepted at UT Austin and this opportunity helped her to realize that UT would be the University she wanted to attend. Thank you and I hope my students have the same opportunity as my daughter. Have an excellent week.

Thanks for the opportunity of serving the students here in El Paso Texas. I am a school counselor for the Tornillo ISD and I gave the information to some of the students that were interested, including my son Aaron Morales. His plans are to attend UT Austin and I know even though he doesn’t get selected this application helps him practice and feel what the process of scholarships are.

The Subiendo Academy for Rising Leaders has changed my life. Knowing the impact that I can make on the lives of students that are very close to embarking on the journey to college is the most rewarding feeling I have ever had. While the students that participate in the academy learn a lot throughout their stay, they have taught me so much about how to be the best role model I can be. This program has thoroughly enriched my experience at University of Texas.
~ Olga Castro, Team Leader
I absolutely cannot wait to go home and apply everything I’ve learned here into my community. Thank you so much for such an amazing experience!

Thank you so much to everyone who contributed to Subiendo and I know that because of this the Subiendo class of 2011 will bring great help to the world!

As a parent, I want to sincerely thank Subiendo, The Academy for Rising Leaders, and EVERYONE involved, from your sponsors to your bus drivers, who helped make it a huge success! My daughter thoroughly enjoyed it from beginning to end. I know she will use all the tools and materials she received. Your generosity is greatly appreciated!

Quisiera dar las gracias a todas aquellas personas involucradas en este simposium de Subiendo. Especialmente a todos los consejeros que pasaron horas eternas a lado de los jovenes participantes. Se que todas las experiencias que estos jovenes vivieron estos ultimos dias, los guiara a alcanzar los planes y suenios que cada uno de ellos tiene. Fue una experiencia inolvidable para mi hijo, y puedo asegurar que para todas las personas que igualmente asistieron. De nuevo, mil gracias.
