The Adelphoi Promise is an initiative that will facilitate college enrollment and subsequent graduation for current and former Adelphoi youth in order to help them achieve a better future for themselves. The program offers three tiers of assistance: financial support, life skills support, and academic support. Combined, these three facets will provide the best chance for at-risk youth to achieve post-secondary success.
Associate’s Degree/Certificate at their home community college
Financial assistance for books
Refurbished laptop computer, when applicable
Guidance and support
The Adelphoi Promise is more than just financial assistance — it offers a firm hand to guide youth through the process of making post-secondary education a reality. A dedicated staff person helps youth navigate the educational system. This coordinator assists in identifying a preferred area of study, filling out college applications and financial aid forms, scheduling placement exams, and overcoming obstacles to education such as transportation, books, tuition costs, etc. The coordinator also works to engage the youth’s family in the process of educational fulfillment in order to increase the chances of success for the youth.
Youth who want to continue their studies at a four-year school can apply for additional assistance through Adelphoi’s existing scholarship and assistance funds.
