Empowering Students to Unlock Their Limitless Potential Through a College Education!

Dear Ysleta ISD employees, 

We are excited to announce the launch of the YEF "Jeankers for Scholars" Employee Giving Campaign, dedicated to empowering education through scholarships. We invite you to join us in making a meaningful impact in the lives of aspiring students seeking higher education opportunities.

YEF and THEDISTRICT believe in the transformative power of education and the potential it holds for individuals to shape their futures. To support this vision, the "Jeankers for Scholars" fund is aimed at assisting deserving students in pursuing their educational dreams.  Together, we aim to raise funds to bolster the YEF Scholarship Program and open doors for students who may otherwise face financial barriers to education.

Last year, 125 YISD students received scholarship awards totaling more than $234,600. By participating in this campaign, you will be supporting outstanding Class of 2024 seniors AND wear your jeans and sneakers for 36 Fridays this school year!
