The Kalamazoo Promise has created an unprecedented amount of individuals and organizations that are stepping up to ensure that all students achieve their dreams of success in life after high school through education and learning that lead to good jobs. Countless partners are willing to help, and no matter how big or small take pride in their contributions. This list is not comprehensive, rather it represents several organizations in the community—organizations that have people volunteering and working hard so that every child can become a Promise Scholar. Here are some common features to their giving:
1. Investing in learning is an important philosophy of the culture of the organizations.
2. Partner organizations give of their resources to help Kalamazoo youth.
3. These resources represent time, money and people.
4. Partner businesses/organizations have stepped up early and often to help youth.
5. These community organizations believe in partnerships; and do so to make sure their contribution is used to help youth reach their maximum potential.
