Promise Coaches Campaign
Keep Pittsburgh Youth in the Graduation Game! 

The Promise Coaches Campaign aims to increase the number of graduating students who are Pittsburgh Promise eligible and create a culture of college readiness 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 college and career success.

Our Mission

The Promise Coaches Campaign aims to create a college-going culture in the City of Pittsburgh by empowering adults to help youth earn a high school diploma and succeed in college and careers.

Our Vision

All Pittsburgh youth will have at least one supportive, knowledgeable adult who can coach them to achieve their academic goals.

Our History

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 nearly 600 adults in the Pittsburgh area to coach young people on to academic success!
