The Promise Ambassadors

06 Dec 2011 |

Cleveland Central Promise Neighborhood’s got ‘em, and you’ve gotta meet ‘em!

Here’s the deal, from the Cleveland Plain Dealer: “During 2011, 20 adults and eight teens were named ‘Promise Ambassadors.’ Each agrees to reach out to at least 50 Central residents and to do a community engagement project to advance the Promise Neighborhood’s ‘cradle to college’ agenda. Each ambassador receives three weeks of training, funded by the Sisters of Charity Foundation, and makes a ‘promise’ to use his or her unique talent to help improve the community.”
