The Texas Apartment Association Education Foundation is excited and honored to have been named a 2018 Community Partner of the Year by partners at Goodwill Houston for the Apartment Professionals Program. TAAEF was recognized alongside our partners at the Houston Apartment Association.

TAAEF’s  Apartment Professionals Program is designed to train entry-level talent for maintenance and leasing positions across the state of Texas.

Together with our partners at Goodwill, local apartment associations, Workforce Solutions, and foundation donors, we recruit and train individuals looking for a positive life change—personally, professionally, or both—and who are eager to put their valuable skills to work in Texas’s rapidly growing apartment industry.

Apartment Professional Program courses have been held in Houston, Austin, Dallas, San Antonio and El Paso, having trained nearly 200 individuals. About 85 percent of the graduates from our active programs go on to find jobs in the apartment industry. TAAEF is working hard to increase the hire rate through efforts that include connecting program graduates with hiring managers from Foundation donor companies, encouraging graduates to upload their resumes to our website, and launching training programs in additional cities across Texas.

TAAEF wants to thank our partners in Houston at Goodwill and the Houston Apartment Association for their continued dedication to the community, the Apartment Professionals Program, and the Texas apartment industry!
