Lebron James onboard the “Promise concept”

How exciting that Lebron James has put his name, personal financial resources, and enormous commitment behind the transformative power of the Promise Model!

Says James: “It means so much because, as a kid growing up in the inner city and a lot of African-American kids, you don’t really think past high school. You don’t really know your future. You hear high school all the time, and you graduate high school, and then you never think past that because either it’s not possible or your family’s not financially stable to even be able to support a kid going to college.”
