Please join us as we congratulate our wonderful
NEST Seniors!

You endured quarantine!
You met the challenge of online learning!
And you kept the faith even in the face of uncertainty!

The NEST Empowerment Center program provides basic needs, academics, career/college readiness, housing and other supportive services for Georgetown ISD high school students qualified at-risk, homeless or living in transition. 
Kudos to the 11 NEST graduates
(10 of whom have been with The NEST since their freshman year!)

"We created the NEST in 2011, and our goal with the program is the same today. We want our students to graduate high school with skills for independent living, and a positive plan for the future. I am proud to report that we have a 100% graduation rate over the past 9 years at the NEST."
- Leslie Janca, Chief Executive Officer, The Georgetown Project
"The NEST has taught me to reach out for help and that no matter how bad things may seem at the time, I know they won’t always stay that way. I have the power to turn things around and that means everything."
- Lila, The Nest graduate
