TPR Presents: When I Grow Up

Designed to inform, entertain and inspire, TPR’s When I Grow Up invites children and teens to meet with a wide variety of professionals called ‘mentors.’ Children and their families meet one-on-one with leaders in the community to learn about their career inspiration as well as educational and professional paths. This is a free kid's event designed to foster the imagination and encourage children to dream big. This event will bring together a wide range of careers to help kids understand the endless possibilities.


Think Science

Texas Public Radio’s Think Science series is designed to share the latest advancements in science.

Worth Repeating

Sept 5, Oct 3, Nov 7, Dec 5, 2017

Brick at Blue Star

Seven storytellers have seven minutes to tell a true story from their life around a common theme. The community-based, storytelling program shared its first story at Geekdom in October 2015. Worth Repeating’s audience quickly outgrew the space and eventually moved to a larger space. With the majority of the listenership made up of a demographic of 40 years and under, your business is reaching a commonsensical group of individuals that have a relatively high income, professional careers, and carry a strong influence in the market. There is an opportunity to sponsor the series.

By Invitation only, the Annual Pinnacle Dinner is made up of TPR”s top tier donors.  TPR’s Silver, Gold, Platinum Circle, and President’s Council gather together for an elegant dinner and the opportunity to connect with a prestigious group of civic-minded, philanthropic individuals over great food and entertainment.

McClain Pinnacle Reception

These gatherings take place three times per year, once in San Antonio and twice in the outlying communities that Texas Public Radio also serves (including the Snyder Texas in the Big Country, Highland Lakes northwest of Austin, and the Del Rio area east of San Antonio).  There is an opportunity to sponsor the series.
