Take the Pledge

Welcome, Educators!

Dallas County Promise is a partnership of local organizations uniting to support students complete education beyond high school and launch their careers. We believe in every student’s potential and in our community’s responsibility to create systems that help students achieve - particularly students from low-income families, first-generation college-going students, and students of color. Thank you for your involvement!

What We Do

You care about your students and want to see them succeed. We do, too! Through quarterly county-wide convenings and monthly campus check-ins, we are committed to helping our partners build capacity to dramatically improve postsecondary outcomes for every student. We work alongside campuses to support and complement the work done by college advisors.

Dallas County Promise programming aims to:

  1. Reduce students’ financial barriers to entering and completing college by supporting Promise Partner colleges to implement a last-dollar tuition scholarship.
  2. Help students navigate college enrollment, completion, and career entry by communicating with students via email and text, hosting workshops, and providing personalized support.
  3. Change systems to better serve students through: aligning Dallas County’s college access policy/process goals, amplifying student and parent voice, and supporting campuses to make data-driven decisions by providing regular college access reports, interactive FAFSA completion tools, and customized case management solutions.
