Ascending to Men Project, ROSES to host winter ball fundraiser 

HISD’s Ascending to Men Project and ROSES will host their first joint winter ball on Wednesday, Dec. 11 at Minute Maid Park. 

Under the umbrella of HISD’s Equity and Outreach Division, the Ascending to Men Project (ATMP) and Resilient Outstanding Sister Exemplifying Success (ROSES) are both mentorship initiatives that provide positive role models and advocates for students who need guidance and opportunities for educational, social, and professional growth to underserved young men and women in the district.

The public can support both initiatives by donating online or by becoming a mentor for the programs. For more information about ROSES, visit To learn more about ATMP, visit
