YTexas is pleased to announce a partnership with Austin-based Prowess Project to create a place where the spouses/partners of relocated professionals have a place of their own.

Prowess Project helps employers boost productivity by leveraging the untapped talent of women returning to work.  Their emotional intelligence-based job matching technology and online community provides a platform for women and employers to seamlessly find an ideal match.

With hundreds of companies relocating to Texas, the partnership will provide a solution to the needs of the trailing spouse/partner in the relocation process.

“We are really looking forward to working with Ashley and the Prowess team on this partnership. Trailing spouses/partners are often an overlooked part of the corporate relocation process. We feel this partnership will help fill a need in the market. Prowess Project is by far the best platform to help us in this endeavor

Ed CurtisCEO, YTexas

The program will provide free and paid services to both individuals and employers.

The free service provides the CEOs of the households:

  • Exclusive channel to network with other new-to-Texas spouses just like them.
  • Partner discounts to help make their move as seamless as possible.
  • City guides – Long-time residents & recent relocators who are there to answer any specific questions.
  • All the perks of joining the Prowess Community – JOBS, events, access to experts, and resources.
  • Resources to help transition their career skills to Texas.
  • Help finding work or build a business that fits with their lifestyle.

“When moving to Texas from California, I desperately needed a place to ask other mothers like me specific questions. ie. What neighbors are family-friendly? Which schools systems to target? What part of town is most convenient to my partner’s office? Thank you, Prowess Project & YTexas, for connecting me with women to help us navigate our transition.”

“If 2020 taught us anything, it’s moms need help too. Especially those going through massive life changes like relocating a family to a different state or country. We’re thrilled to partner with YTexas to give new-to-Texas spouses a place of their very own to network, vent, find resources and further their career. Here’s to changing lives!”
