Dr. Betty Anderson


Generation-To-Generation Ministries, Inc. was born as the vision of Dr. Betty Anderson. Retirement would not let her rest, knowing that too many youths were failing to receive the everyday life skills they needed to succeed. Knowing from personal experience how easily children are led astray and how badly they need someone to teach them how to cope with everyday life, Dr. Anderson recommitted her life to helping youth succeed by establishing Generation-To-Generation Ministries, Inc.


She retired from the Dallas Independent School District. Her last twenty-two years of teaching were at South Oak High School, where she was Chairperson of the Student Support Team (SST) for 12 years. The purpose of this team was to coordinate and facilitate the delivery of mental health-related services within the school. While serving as chairperson of this team, Dr.Anderson was allowed to work with students who brought the many issues they were facing to the committee. These issues were drugs, teen parents, bad environment, truancy, and academic failure.


Dr. Anderson realized that many youths, beyond those who came to the SST, had issues and problems they were dealing with and had no one to turn to. Therefore, she tried to help fill that void by becoming a student’s advocate and supporter of any student who made her their adult role model and confidant.


Generation-To-Generation has taught Self-Esteem, Anger Management, and Conflict Resolution at two junior high schools, Anger Management, Conflict Resolution, and Teen Parenting at two high schools. Workshops have also been presented for Job Corps, the YWCA, Youth Church conference, Estelle Village Apartments Community Center, and a Boys and Girls Club.


Dr. Anderson received her degree from East Texas State University, Master of Education from North Texas State University, and Bachelor’s degree from Huston-Tillotson College in Austin, Texas. She is an ordained minister with a Bible Diploma from Dallas Theological Seminary. She received her Life-Skills Trainer-of-Trainer Certification from the Arise Foundation in Miami, Florida in. One segment of this training was conducted at the Dade County Juvenile Detention and shelter; she also took courses in Psychology and Social Work at Eastfield College.


Her passion in life is at-risk kids and at-risk youth in particular. Growing up as at-risk youth, she knows the value of having a positive relationship with an adult with the right skills. A structured program for youth dramatically significantly increases the success rate of the individuals.


Compassion, a listening ear, and a non-threatening forum to express issues that they are experiencing give youth many opportunities to identify and work through their inner conflicts and develop coping skills that will help them become self-sufficient and socially acceptable.
