Year 1 Progress Report

It has been an awesome first year of growth and development! Learn more about our year 1 learnings, and the mission and vision forward for the Richmond Promise!

This is our Promise:

We want to ensure every young person from Richmond has the resources and tools necessary to secure a high quality education and qualify for well-paying jobs.

The Richmond Promise is more than a scholarship. 

The Richmond Promise is a community wide College Scholarship Fund and College Success Program. It is a unified effort between the City of Richmond, West Contra Costa Unified School District, Contra Costa College and the Richmond community to create a college graduating culture in Richmond and provide comprehensive support to help Richmond students realize their ambitions and succeed in college!

B. Are you graduating from a high school within the WCCUSD boundaries?

C. Have you attended local schools since the 9th grade?
