Pasos for Oak Cliff is a 501(c)(3) education based non-profit founded on August 2020. The mission is to improve educational inequities by giving new shoes to students in need and by providing scholarships for first-generation low-income college students.
Pasos was founder by Jesse Acosta, a high school teacher, and Alejandra Zendejas, a math tutor. They both consider themselves sneakerheads.
Hence, one of Pasos' goals is to give stylish sneakers that will boost confidence for the student. In effect, increasing school attendance and grades.
As of August 2021, Pasos has given out 1,000+ pairs of shoes.
