The 6th Annual Friends of DiscoverU Luncheon

Tuesday, October 29, 2019


The Junior League of Houston

We are thrilled to announce that the 6th Annual Friends of DiscoverU Luncheon is scheduled for Tuesday, October 29, 2019 from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM at The Junior League of Houston.  The event goal is to raise scholarship funds as we connect with friends old and new around a collective commitment to equalizing access to high-quality, out-of-school learning opportunities for thousands of young people in Houston.

DiscoverU’s mission is to support under resourced students in participating in Fantastic Learning Opportunities (FLOs)—college- and career-preparatory experiences that take place in locations across the globe.  Because of our efforts, more than 3,500 Houston youth have engaged in FLOs during their school breaks, and it’s clear that Experience Matters: DiscoverU students are graduating from post-secondary programs at twice the rate of the national average.

At this year’s luncheon, Beth Speck of Cristo Rey Jesuit will receive the Community Partner of the Year Award and The Samuels Foundation will receive the Champion of the Year Award for their sustaining financial support for DiscoverU.
