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.

One-On-One Meetings

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 classroom, the library, the cafeteria – wherever students feel most comfortable talking about these important goals!

Student Portfolios

The Student Portfolios serves as the initial connection between students and their AmeriCorps Coaches. Student portfolios include evidence of goals acheived towards a students personal post-secondary plan. Students who work with Promise Corps throughout their high school experience graduate with a portfolio full of action and items that will support their post-secondary plan and serve as a go to place for documentation they may need along the way. 

Postsecondary Workshops

Promise Corps provides various post-secondary workshops specific to grade level and topic area such as Introduction to Career Clusters, the Local Workforce, Resume writing for Sophomores and many more topics. Promise Corps comes with prepared workshops to facilitate at events or in class at partner school sites and is also open to creating content as needed.
