Pasos for Oak Cliff, a non-profit, is set up by Jesse Acosta, a high school teacher, and Alejandra Zendejas, a math tutor. We both consider ourselves sneakerheads.
As sneakerhead educators and members of the community, we are fully aware that parents and guardians struggle to supply some basic necessities for their children - this is especially true when it comes to shoes.
As a result, we decided to turn our LOVE for sneakers into a proactive start up - Pasos for Oak Cliff. The goal of Pasos for Oak Cliff is to give students new shoes. The lack of good quality shoes leads to discomfort, ridicule, bullying, and isolation. We can prevent that from happening, but we cannot do it alone, we need YOUR SUPPORT.
The Pasos All Stars Program
The Pasos All Stars is a four-week summer intervention program for rising 9th graders affected by learning loss in literacy and math. Students will meet growth and challenge themselves with their new knowledge to design an original sneaker and interact with other student innovators like themselves!
Our inaugural program was sponsored by Dallas College at Mountain View, Uniformity, and The Dallas Mavericks.
