 I PROMISE Kids on Campus

Navigating an expansive college campus can be an intimidating undertaking for anyone, so the LeBron James Family Foundation has made it part of our mission to begin exposing our students to college life as early and often as possible. Because that campus IS for them and college is within their reach. It’s just as important that they see for themselves not only do they belong, but they are welcome with open arms. 

 

This past week, our I PROMISE School fourth graders spent the day with our family of Flashes at Kent State, familiarizing themselves with life on a college campus. They studied in Oscar Ritchie Hall, KSU’s hub for Africana Studies, where they learned the arts of African drumming and dancing. They also got to experience a Radical Welcome and lunch on campus with their classmates and fellow I PROMISE peers who now attend Kent State.

It’s just as important that they see for themselves not only do they belong, but they are welcome with open arms. 

To see any intimidation or worry turn into smiles and confidence by the end of the day is why we prioritize these college experiences. It was a full circle, family moment for our fourth graders we hope will continue to fuel their dreams and passions forward.
