The Pasos Program brings together motivated educators and a community that view our location, population, and stories as assets to student success. Pasos is dedicated to advancing our US/Mexico border community through family engagement, equity in the classroom, inclusion, and social justice. We will increase civic engagement through educational, creative projects, service learning, and community activism.
- Cariño In the classroom - Embracing Cariño In the Classroom is a half-day interactive faculty training that takes place each semester. It features Pasos faculty and community guest speakers addressing various aspects of culturally relevant teaching modes. The topics often focus on active student engagement, creating a supportive classroom, and connecting what students are learning to relevant community issues.
- Thrive - Thrive provides students with monthly success workshops during the Fall and Spring semesters. Thrive workshops target themes that impact students outside of the classroom and provide students with skills for college, career, and life.
- Off The Page - Off The Page is a student reading series that is held on the Valle Verde campus in both Fall and Spring semesters. This year, the students' creative writing works are featured in this section.
- Pasos Journal - In this publication the wonderful work of our students is showcased. Through their words, art and photos we catch a glimpse into the talent that is our community’s pride.
