Dallas County Promise Champion Kickoff

October 16 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am

Free

The pivotal moments from adolescence to adulthood can happen in the blink of an eye. A student’s senior year in high school is marked by a series of decision points that can have a major impact on their future opportunities. What if every student had their own adult Champion to encourage them along the way?

Dallas County Promise is launching an initiative that will connect high school seniors with advocates to help them navigate the critical benchmarks to post-graduation. In collaboration with Big Thought, Dallas ISD, the United Way of Metropolitan Dallas and youth-serving organizations across Dallas County, the Promise Champions Initiative will help ensure that all young people are able to access free college tuition and/or career pathways offered through the Dallas County Promise.

Come learn how you or your organization can become a Promise Champion and help make the Promise a reality for all Dallas youth. As a Promise Champion, your guidance will encourage high school seniors along the path to college and career through their pivotal, gateway Senior-year.
