Global Scholars

Global Scholars aims to increase high school graduation and post-secondary acceptance for refugees in 11th and 12th grades. In this community-based program, mentors are paired with students in 11th or 12th grade from three Houston high schools. Each mentor guides a young refugee for a period of at least one year to help the student develop and reach his or her personal, academic, and career potential.

Global Scholars also receive case management from PAIR staff focused on graduation milestones and skills: researching careers, applying for college, writing personal statements, completing financial aid and scholarship applications, and transitioning to college life.

Summer PAIR 

PAIR's month-long Summer Program for Global Leaders brings together students from all three middle school programs at one community site.  Thematic activities build language, social and academic skills to decrease summer learning loss, all in a hands-on environment. Students explore the Houston community, take part in STEM projects, play games, meet new people, practice English, and develop academic and social skills.

High School Summer programs extend learning opportunities beyond the academic year to encourage career exploration and college readiness, prevent summer learning loss, and promote leadership skills. Through PAIR’s and partner enrichment programs, our students are able to gain exposure to new opportunities, build a resume of out-of-school experience, and develop an early network of peers, professionals, and support organizations.
