G.Town Promise now provides youth residing in Greeley and Evans who attend Greeley-Evans District 6, charter, and private schools, with the additional help they need to become successful, productive adults; and to provide a quality workforce for Greeley and Evans.
“It’s a partnership,” said Greeley City Manager Roy Otto. “It’s businesses, educators, organizations, and city government working together to leverage each others’ resources and expertise instead of going it alone.”
The goal of the G.Town Promise is to empower existing programs to build and support structures that help students with their academic decisions.
These structures include career planning support, local internships and mentoring programs, leadership development, opportunities to participate in after-school and extra-curricular activities and funding for post-secondary education.
That financial assistance helps make a post-secondary degree a reality as G.Town Promise works with the College Promise scholarship program to raise additional financial resources and provide increased opportunities for students — mostly first generation to college — to advance their higher education objectives at Aims as well as other higher education institutions in Colorado.
