Hancock County Promise

Hancock County Promise is a grassroots, community-driven effort, to address the need for a college-going culture that supports all youth with the means to pursue their dreams beyond high school by engaging families in the process, planting the seeds of hope at an early age, and rallying communities around the issue of educational attainment.  The Promise shifts the conversation about post-secondary education from one that takes place in high school to one that begins in kindergarten.  We are making a promise that any child can pursue success beyond high school.  Through the Promise, youth being to dream about their future, explore college and careers, and start their educational savings as early as kindergarten, while adults in their community encourage them on the pathway to success.  Youth in the program not only build assets for post-secondary education and learn about college and careers, but they also visit a college campus for a day of interactive learning and dynamic hands-on experiences called "Walk Into My Future."  IUPUI will host this event for Hancock County Kindergarteners.
