2015: $10,000 to City of Promise

Charlottesville's City of Promise is a Promise Neighborhood initiative designed to create a continuum of solutions with the potential to significantly improve the educational and developmental outcomes of children and youth in the 10th and Page, Westhaven, and Star Hill neighborhoods.  Women United's $10,000 grant will be used to provide evidence-based academic coaching for 20 youth ages 12-17 in the City of Promise Neighborhood (Westhaven, 10th& Page, Starr Hill). Students will be selected on the basis of need, and will also receive wrap-around supports through City of Promise and its community partners to ensure their ability to thrive academically, personally and eventually professionally.
