What is the Birmingham Promise?
The Birmingham Promise connects city school students with workforce experience and post-secondary opportunities to enhance their economic mobility.
At Birmingham Promise, we believe in empowering families and providing a path towards economic security, mobility, and prosperity. By keeping our program requirements minimal, we strive to remove barriers and open doors for students who may have been historically denied equal access to educational opportunities due to social and financial limitations.
Our Mission and Vision.
Our mission is to support and prepare every Birmingham City School student to achieve economic security, mobility, and prosperity. We do this by providing high-quality work experiences in the form of internships and apprenticeships. We also reduce the cost of post-secondary education for students from all academic backgrounds. We operate with a relentless student-centric and asset-based approach to ensure that all of Birmingham’s talent is connected to opportunity.
We envision a world in which every Birmingham City School student is supported and prepared to pursue a post-secondary option that will lead to economic security, mobility, and prosperity.
Make a promise to their future.
The Birmingham Promise is made possible by educators, colleges, individuals, and businesses looking to make a difference for the future of our city—our students. Your support is your promise to help us all keep moving ahead.
