World Famous Musical Genius and Humanitarian Pitbull
About the Project
This Exciting Project is to support 250 students to attend our program with iconic musician and humanitarian Pitbull for his first ever lecture program like ours. We are thrilled with yet another Houston first program and want to gift 250 young people from Houston-area Downs Syndrome support groups to hear Pitbull (Armando Christian Perez) speak. Each quarter, our programs help young people and their families reach their goals by providing a forum to hear the inspirational stories of men and women who have achieved national and international renown. We invite people who have made the journey through their own lives and who can, by example, inspire and motivate our potential future leaders to make that same journey. We are celebrating our 11th year of programming started with Her Majesty Queen Noor of Jordan followed by 102 luminaries including Sir Sidney Poitier; Secretary-General Kofi Annan; Dame Julie Andrews; Diana Ross; Dr. Maya Angelou, George Clooney, President Mikhail Gorbachev, Betty White to name just a few reaching some 160,000 people of all ages, races and backgrounds. In addition, our direct in-school programs reach more than 10,000 students per year in some of the most challenging schools in our community. As a result of these unique, educational and accessible programs; student attendance and graduation rates have improved and the percentage of students accepted to university is on the rise.
