Hi Mama Bears! Would you like to develop community with other Baylor mamas? This year we introducing the God Centered Mom Podcast Club. This group will meet once a month in the Penland conference room to discuss the podcast episode selected each month.

Community Service and Involvement Interest Group

The LEAD program is a business and education partnership sponsored by the Greater Waco Chamber. The program pairs Waco Independent School District, LaVega ISD, Midway ISD, Harmony Science Academy and Rapoport Academy high school students with business leaders to foster mentoring relationships that educate and expose students to various business fields. By improving the students’ knowledge of higher education and potential career paths they expand their goals for their future. We hope to motivate them to graduate high school and pursue higher education, which in turn ensures greater employability and quality of life.
