The Promise Coaches Campaign aims to increase the number of graduating students who are Pittsburgh Promise eligible and promote a culture of higher education in the City of Pittsburgh. This Campaign will equip Pittsburgh adults with the necessary tools and resources to help the students in their lives earn a high school diploma and ensure that they are on the road to post-secondary and career success.
The Promise Coaches Campaign aims to equip and empower adults in the City of Pittsburgh to help all youth earn a high school diploma and succeed in higher education and careers.
All Pittsburgh youth will have at least one supportive, knowledgeable adult who can coach them to achieve their academic and career goals.
The Promise Coaches Campaign began in early 2013 and drew its inspiration from the Graduation Coaches Campaign of Philadelphia. We were established through support from The Mentoring Partnership of Southwestern Pennsylvania, United Way of Allegheny County, Pittsburgh Public Schools, The Pittsburgh Promise and additional campaign partners and community organizations. Since its inception, Promise Coaches has trained over 600 adults in the Pittsburgh area to coach young people on to academic success!
