Retaining SATX Talent
The future of San Antonio’s economy depends on a sustainable workforce pipeline.
Our new talent retention initiative, Alamo Fellows, aims to harness the skills of first-generation students in our region and equip them with the social networks, cultural tools, and professional capacity to navigate their professional trajectories.
We are focused on building diverse, inclusive, and equitable access to professional opportunities for talent in San Antonio. As trailblazers in their families and communities, many first-generation students navigate their educational journeys with less access to the social and cultural capital than students that come from multiple generations of college-goers. Supporting first-generation students is an investment in the future.
The Alamo Fellows program supports students’ professional development by increasing their connections in our city and community. The program will expose fellows to a variety of non-profit, public, and private organizations that lead economic growth in our city.
Alamo Fellows creates the following kinds of connections for students:
Community: Fellows will participate in an internship with a nonprofit and contribute to projects that expose them to the community’s needs and social context.
Career: Fellows will intern with a local company that aligns with their majors and career aspirations in STEM fields.
Social: Throughout the fellowship, students will engage in various workshops, tours, keynote presentations, mixers, and events intended to increase their networks and exposure to our city.
Student applications are now open for the first Alamo Fellows cohort. Learn more and apply today.
