TEP’s mission is to continue to be a “home away from home” for TEP alumni and their families long after 8th grade graduation. TEP’s alumni program aims to build a network that efficiently connects alumni to necessary supports, enrichment opportunities, and the greater community. Via these connections, we strive to increase high school graduation rates as well as college and career readiness for all TEP alumni. While our students may graduate, their academic and personal success is our number one priority.
Merelin Baldonado ’17 and Zerimar Ramirez ’17 are making a difference with their free book service, Books for All. Born out of a crowdfunding initative in the Spring of 2020, Books For All aims to both amplify the voices of BIPOC and LGBTQ authors, with the ultimate goal of increasing young adult’s access to literature they may not otherwise find in their local library or school. Check out Merelin and Zerimar’s inspiring work here.
