Believe & Achieve
TRM provides youth development and scholarship programs for students in grades 6th-12th. In partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters of North Texas, students are paired with mentors who work closely with them to encourage academic success and improve self-esteem. Youth are guided to stay in school and plan for post-secondary education. Students learn valuable life skills, accountability, and the importance of volunteering in their community.
In partnership with the North Texas Food Bank and Capital One, TRM feeds any child from the community who needs a nutritious meal. TRM serves more than 15,000 meals throughout the school year and summer months.
Parents are supported and encouraged to volunteer in their community and schools, improve themselves through education by taking ESL and/or GED classes, and to support the development of educational success in their children.
