McKeesport in Akron
There are more than 100 miles that separate Akron, Ohio and McKeesport, Pennsylvania on a map. But there is a lot of passion, pride and mutual appreciation that bring us close together. 
In McKeesport, there is momentum building around the I PROMISE Movement. As one of the first cities to truly embrace our We Are Family philosophy, they are hard at work implementing many of our I PROMISE methods. 
Recently, a group of high school students from the McKeesport community, alongside our partners at Dicks Sporting Goods, spent a day with us in Akron to experience our I PROMISE ways up close and better understand how they can take this model back and apply it to their school district. 
In McKeesport, there is momentum building around the I PROMISE Movement.
Their visit included quality time with educators at the I PROMISE School, I PROMISE Institute, I PROMISE Village, and House Three Thirty – with every stop being a source of learning and inspiration for our 330 Ambassadors’ counterparts from PA. They were also joined by Ms. James to get further insight into what makes Akron and I PROMISE so impactful for everyone involved. 
There is truly something special brewing here. To have another community invest their time and energy in digging deeper into every aspect of our movement – with the intent to implement it in their own way – is humbling, inspiring, and incredibly exciting. 
This is just the beginning.
