Founder’s Welcome

Dennis KennedyI would like to personally welcome you to the Texas Diversity Council Summer Youth Program website. We at the Texas Diversity Council recognize that our youth are our future, and in order for our country to continue to be productive and excel on the global stage, we must make an investment in their education. In our society today, youth, especially minorities, experience numerous challenges and barriers in both middle and high school. As a result, few successfully make the transition to college.

Through the Texas Diversity Youth Program, we aim to provide diversity and inclusion education, resources, tools and forums to middle and high school students to provide them with support they require to succeed in their secondary education. We encourage you to get involved, and help us in putting our Youth FIRST!
