What is Generation Texas?
Generation Texas (GenTX) is a statewide, grassroots movement focused on creating a culture of college and career readiness that leads to the most successful generation ever. There are currently 25 regional GenTX communities and the Center for P-16 Initiatives houses the Central Texas regional headquarters. Annual campaigns include Way to Pay: helps college-bound high school seniors and their families apply for financial aid. Rock Your Future: a fall initiative aimed at reaching every incoming high school freshman in Central Texas with the message that their post-secondary preparation begins now. The annual GenTX Day helps promote a college-going culture by encouraging all Texans to wear their favorite college t-shirt that day and to take a tour of colleges and universities statewide. Workshops and dialogue series occur year-round to help parents and students plan for the future.
