Commitment from Our Local Community 

Providence Promise is a community effort that brings together students, families, the City of Providence, the Providence School Department, the Teachers Union, and many of the City’s residents, businesses, and institutions. There are over 300 active Promise Programs in 44 states across the country. While each program is different in design, they share a common goal: to make higher education a reality for all students.


“I am confident that there is no better investment we can make as a city than to invest in the future of our youth, and that is why I support Providence Promise.”
— Jorge O. Elorza, Mayor of Providence
