Spotlight on San Antonio - Skills for Business

On November 2, 2016, the city of San Antonio, Texas community leaders and elected officials celebrated the grand opening of the 56,000-square-foot Eastside Education & Training Center (EETC). The facility, which occupies the former Pfeiffer Elementary School, is a one-stop education and workforce development center designed for the Eastside community in partnership with Alamo Colleges and San Antonio Independent School District (SAISD). The city identified and served as a co-applicant with Alamo Colleges and SAISD to secure a $1.5 million grant from the U.S. Economic Development Administration to renovate the facility. The San Antonio’s Fiscal Year 2017 General Fund budget allocated $100,000 to open and operate the EETC for the next two years.

[Mark Etienne, Director, Office of Eastpoint] This is a historic project for the east side because we finally have a one-stop center or facility where we can provide job training services, child care services, GED classes and job placement--make that available to east side residents.

[Kendra Franklin, student] I heard about this program riding down the street one day. I saw the flyer and it took my interest. They've helped so much. I started off as a CNA [certified nursing assistant] and I'm now in school to be a medical assistant. I'm going to go for LVN [licensed vocational nurse], and after that RN [registered nurse], and after that, just keep going. My goal is to be a doctor.

[Etienne] Give yourselves a round of applause.
