Finances are not the only barrier to post-secondary access and success. Our data show that even with the availability of significant financial support, too few PPS 9th graders graduate from high school, enroll in postsecondary education, and earn a credential. This perpetuates inequities for under resourced communities and creates significant workforce challenges for our region’s economy.

Promise Coaches work in partnership with Pittsburgh Public Schools to focus intentionally on providing personal career exploration, mental strengthening, and appropriate interventions to every high school student starting in the 9th grade inside three schools Carrick, Perry and Uprep (Milliones).

We offer many other programs and partnerships to PPS students and scholarship recipients to ensure their college and career success.
