What is the Promise Corps Program?
There are 3 facets to the Promise Corps Program. Members present 5 postsecondary workshops to students, meet with them 12 or more times throughout the school year, and complete an individualized student success plan with their students.
Members meet with students one-on-one to discuss their postsecondary goals and how they’ll reach them. This happens in the classroom, the Promise Corps room, the library, the cafeteria – wherever students feel most comfortable talking about these important goals.
The ISSP serves as the initial connection between students and their CCAs. CCAs meet with students to first gain their contact information and have conversations about their desired postsecondary option. Then, CCAs are able to support students in the creation of tangible goals for the year, such as completing FAFSA and applying to college. Students must complete one of these goals throughout the year and sign the document to ensure completion.
Students must attend 3 of 5 postsecondary workshops provided by CCAs. Workshops are 30 minute sessions either 1:1 or in groups focused on one of the following topics:
1. College Access
2. Jobs & Internships
3. Local Workforce
4. Military Service
5. National Service
