Helping youth prepare for their future is a priority at Adelphoi. For many kids, however, college may not seem like a possibility. Fortunately, the Adelphoi Promise makes college a reality for youth that successfully completes an Adelphoi program.
Vincent Home resident Robbie participates in the Adelphoi Promise by taking classes through the Westmoreland County Community College.
“Through the Adelphoi Promise program, I’ve learned how to use state-of-the-art microcomputer systems, the fundamentals of psychology, and how to work through college,” said Robbie. “I have an advisor that also helps guide me and I’m currently earning A’s in all of my classes.”
The Adelphoi Promise offers Adelphoi youth up to two years of tuition free education at a partnering community college, as well as assistance for books, guidance and support. The Adelphoi Promise has expanded to include 10 community colleges across the state of Pennsylvania, encompassing over 60 branch campuses and providing our youth more opportunities to achieve a better future
The program is funded solely by donors, and so the impact of donations on this program is significant. Since its inception, the Adelphoi Promise has helped make college a reality for over 400 youth earning over 3,000 credits, and has provided over $250,000 in financial assistance.
“Adelphoi Promise has offered me an opportunity that I never thought I would have,” Robbie noted. “The promise has helped guide me into a new world to achieve success and make a difference in my life.”
