Keeping Our Promise-
Happy New Year! Promise Scholars has been so grateful for the support of our community, partners, and supporters as we pivoted quickly to meet the needs of our students virtually.
We have worked hard to get our Financial Aid Workshops live on Zoom in English and Spanish. We are working towards getting 1000 students from the Class of 2021 signed up for our SignalVine texting platform, where they receive 1:1 virtual advising on college applications, financial aid, and emotional support from Promise Scholar staff.
Our newly launched Student Ambassador Program has 18 Student Ambassadors from Chaffey, Montclair, and Ontario High Schools have been engaging their fellow students on social media, sharing our $10,000 Opportunity Scholarship to encourage and support their fellow students in their college-going journeys!
Our College is 4 U initiative has been made possible with the support of Growing Inland Achievement, a regional network of partners focused on improving the economic outlook of the Inland Empire by raising the region’s educational attainment rates. Our #Collegeis4U initiative brings together high school Student Ambassadors, first-generation college students, alumni, and community college graduates to share their stories and show first-generation, underrepresented that there is the place in college where they belong.
Despite the challenges of this year, what we have learned is that our community, partners, supporters, and students are resilient, passionate, and giving beyond measure. Thank you for the support that you have shown us this year. We are excited to continue doing this work alongside you.
