Akron Promise is working to shape a community-involved culture of education in Akron. We’re working with other stakeholders in the community to give students and families access to appropriate supports, resources and opportunities.
In 2017, Akron Promise started the process to implement direct programs for students at Kenmore-Garfield High School. These including the Kenmore-Garfield Student Advocates, ACT Testing Support programs and the Kenmore-Garfield Stark State College Scholarship.
In 2019, Akron Promise established the Kenmore-Garfield “Student Success Team” as a peer support network to help students prepare for life after high school. We partner with the AVID program at the school along with other organizations at KGHS.
