Welcome to the Youth Engagement Center!

Our program is designed to assist and encourage top 8% students, potential first-generation college students, and FARL (free and reduced lunch) students to attend The University of Texas at Austin after graduation from the Austin Independent School District.



Our Schools: All AISD High Schools

From SAT/ACT prep, scholarships and college applications, we’ve got it all right here. See our SAT & ACT Test Prep Communication Plan for more information.

We could not survive without the generous support of our sponsors. Make a contribution to UT Outreach Austin. Learn more
