The Hidalgo County Board of State District Judges announced today that funding had been secured in the amount of $25,000.00 from the Texas Bar Foundation to launch Project Recover. Project Recover is an online high school credit recovery program for individuals that are lacking high school credits to obtain their high school diploma. The individuals who will participate in the program are under a community supervision order which resulted from judicial intervention to encourage high school graduation. 

“The intent of the program is to assist those in the criminal justice system to have an avenue for completing their high school diploma in order to increase their ability to become employed and become productive citizens” said Noe Gonzalez, Local Administrative State District Judge.

In addition to the high school credit recovery, the program will provide life skills coaching, resume writing training, as well as job search facilitation. Gonzalez explained. 

Project Recover will accept 30 participants who meet the criteria set forth by the Texas Bar Foundation and the Hidalgo County Board of State District Judges in their competitive grant application. Classes will be held online and will provide tutors for those who need additional instruction. 

Gonzalez explained that Project Recover fills a need in the criminal justice system to ensure defendants a pathway to success by completing their high school diploma. Participants will have project participation and completion as a condition of their community supervision.
