SomerPromise Advisory Board

School childrenSomerPromise is a community change initiative. The mission of our citywide campaign is to ensure that every child living in Somerville achieves his or her greatest potential, graduates from high school and is prepared for college or the work force. SomerPromise brings together representatives from the city, its public schools, nonprofits, other service providers, and residents in order to improve opportunities and educational outcomes for Somerville’s youth. 

The SomerPromise Advisory Board is comprised of members who represent parents, the City, the Board of Aldermen, Somerville Public Schools, Somerville Housing Authority, Tufts University, low-income residents, and nonprofit organizations. The SomerPromise Advisory Board is responsible for providing input in the coalition’s operations; providing oversight of SomerPromise’s grant-making process; publicly advocating for the coalition; and ensuring ethical integrity and maintaining accountability of the coalition.
