The AlamoPROMISE is powered by school districts, 大专院校, 雇主, 社区组织联合起来支持学生完成高中以上的教育, 开始他们的职业生涯, 和 being included in the economic success of our region.

在一起, we believe in every student’s potential 和 in our community’s responsibility to transform systems that were designed for exclusivity instead of access – systems riddled with barriers that disproportionately impact students in poverty 和 students of color.

Every AlamoPROMISE partner has a unique role to play in supporting students through each stage of their educational 和 economic journey. 我们很自豪地认识到他们的贡献,我们邀请我们社区的其他人加入我们的工作.
