ROCKFORD PROMISE

What if we could promise every graduate of Rockford Public School District 205 the encouragement, mentorship and financial support necessary to earn a college degree?

Every student would have a path to post-secondary education.

Potential residents would enthusiastically choose our community because of the opportunities for their kids.

Businesses would want to locate here because of the availability of a talented workforce.

That’s the vision of Rockford Promise, a non-profit 501(c)(3) location-based scholarship program modeled after promise programs around the nation.

SCHOLAR ORIENTATION

What a great afternoon! Our 2021 Scholars gathered today to learn skills and strategies for college success. Over the course of the afternoon, Scholars got to hear from college representatives, local workforce partners, and Rockford Promise staff, as well as each other. They interacted and shared some of their thoughts and hopes and fears as they approach this new chapter, and visualized what the future could look like for them. With Scholars like these, the future is bright!!
