Houston 3rd platoon was formed in early 2015 with KIPP being our sole operational partner. The operation has since pivoted slightly and expanded to ensure we are maximizing our effectiveness in empowering youth in the Houston region. This year we look forward to working with Eight Million Stories located in the Gulfton community between 610 Loop and Beltway 8, west of the City of Bellaire, southeast of U.S. Highway 59, and north of Bellaire Boulevard.

8 Million Stories (8MS), founded in 2017, helps adjudicated youth succeed. To date, they have served 140 students with comprehensive support helping them stay out of prison and on a path to success. The City of Houston gifted this organization 5 buildings and we look forward to conducting service projects that will beautify this campus and help students thrive.
