Project ARRIBA has graduated over 1,300 at-risk students in demand careers that include registered nursing, licensed vocational nursing, other allied healthcare fields, information technology and other demand occupations. Program graduates are adding $710.2 million dollars in income to the local economy and are estimated to pay an additional $171.31 million in taxes over the remainder of their work years due to their higher earning potential. In addition, the program provides a great return on investment - for every dollar invested in the program, $24 is returned back to the El Paso community (“The Economic Impact of Project ARRIBA on El Paso, Texas”, report performed by the Institute for Policy and Economic Development at the University of Texas at El Paso, 2015).
