Our History

 

In 2004, our founder and executive director, Carolyn Heath helped an older gentleman fill out a tax form in the basement of Antioch Church. As weeks went by, and an increasing number of people came to her for help. Carolyn came to understand her calling: She was to build an organization in San Antonio that would address the learning needs of its citizens and support their transitions into work, further learning, parenthood, or from prison, addiction or homelessness. Thus, Each One Teach One was begun.

 

In the years since, EOTOSA has become a 501(c)(3) program, has opened up numerous sites throughout San Antonio, and has served over 500 learners.

 

Our name, Each One Teach One, comes from a Kwanzaa tradition observing that it takes an entire community to educate and strengthen each member. Today, EOTOSA is continuing this powerful practice, teaching each learner step-by-step, one lesson at a time.

 

"We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths."
