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.

Transforming A Life,
Transforming A Region: The Power of Education

Wednesday, April 14 | 8-9:00am

It's no secret that developing a talented, robust workforce is key to a thriving local economy. But, understanding exactly how education relates to the economic welfare and workforce depth in a community is a long-term strategy that can feel daunting and, at times, unattainable. Fortunately, the Rockford Community has a blueprint for success - Promise Programs.

Join us for an interactive conversation with Rockford Promise, Alignment Rockford, and special guest speaker Saleem Ghubril Executive Director of Pittsburgh Promise on how education truly can transform a life, and a region. Hosted by the Rockford Chamber of Commerce.
