Progress Report
They say all good things take time. And it will take time to build out all of the plans we have for our I PROMISE families, but we don’t have the luxury of time. Our families need resources now, so we are working day in and day out to bring them to life as quickly as we can.
After officially breaking ground on I PROMISE Housing in October, the project is up and running full speed ahead. This week, the land has been cleared and prepped for the next phase, and we can’t wait to watch this one quickly progress.

Over at the I PROMISE Institute, the incredible artist Chardae is nearing completion of an original mural designed to inspire our college I Promise Network students and all who step foot in the space on The University of Akron’s campus. Filled with words and images of love and encouragement, the mural will be a day maker and game changer for our Institute.
House Three Thirty keeps changing by the hour with renovations continuing around the clock. The building’s original exterior façade has been completely removed and overhauled, making way for the community space’s new look and feel. We can’t wait to begin writing the next chapter of the space’s iconic presence in the Akron community. 
 
Our I PROMISE students keep making progress in the classroom, in the community, and on the football field as well. Recently, our 6th grader Nate Griffin helped the North Vikings win the Akron PeeWee Varsity Football Championship. The standout offensive lineman can do it all, contributing both on offense and defensively in the championship game. He didn’t do it alone, as he had fellow I PROMISE School students cheering him on with 7th graders Kamari and Kamoni Dennis and Neveah Jordan representing on the North Vikings cheerleading squad.
 
We are so proud of the way our students and families have been showing up for each other. That’s why we will continue to work day in and day out on our full plate of projects as we continue to show up for them.
