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 Student Portfolios serves as the initial connection between students and their CCCs. It is regularly updated throughout a student’s high school experience. Portfolios are grade level specific and help guide students towards their desired post-secondary plan.
Students must attend 3 of 5 postsecondary workshops provided by CCCs. 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
