Ex-Pat Initiative

The goal of the Ex-Pat Committee is to connect former El Pasoans with current Progressors to create valuable connections and mentorship opportunities and may ultimately help recruit top talent back to El Paso. Progress321 wants to help increase economic development in El Paso-one of the poorest communities in the U.S.

Progress321 wants to attract qualified people who have El Paso roots to eliminate the brain drain that currently plagues El Paso as educated residents leave to take jobs in bigger, more economically developed areas. Progressors are connecting experienced professionals who are looking to return to the region with mentors and creating networking opportunities that may lead to future employment in the region because these opportunities are often difficult to identify when people are away from the region or lost their networks.
