Bauer Community Outreach


"I just wanted to thank you once again for the great opportunities you and your team provided for our students. So many teachers came up to me afterwards and expressed how this was the best college trip they had taken and how very helpful you guys were. I never know how influential the experience is for the students, but I am grateful for the opportunity to plant that seed of hope. Some of the kids who went have a very rough background and need lots of constant supervision, but it was great seeing their little faces as they begin to think that this dream is also possible for them. Once again, thanks. Looking forward to next year."

"The purpose of the Youth Program at the Texas Gulf Coast Region of the American Red Cross is to inspire the next generation of volunteers. Since the Red Cross is ‘led by volunteers,’ we are compelled to give our young people the tools to make them great leaders so they can help our organization continue to fulfill our mission with excellence. Thanks to the support of the University of Houston, Bauer College of Business since 2012, we are able provide engaging keynote speakers, opportunities to learn directly from Houston’s leaders, and facilitate breakout sessions that allow the students to choose which aspects of leadership they personally want to develop."

"I would like to thank you for all of your help throughout this semester! I also really appreciate everything you do to impact the community around us. I am very big on talking/mentoring students. I think it is very important to reach out to the future generations and we have to do our part to make sure they are receiving the help they need. Thank you for allowing me to participate in the Bauer Outreach school visits. I plan to come back next semester to attend more!"
