Vermont Promise Communities

The Promise Community Initiative will provide supports to help communities (with at least one elementary school) to work across sectors – including health, education, human services and community planning. The support provided includes technical assistance from Promise Community team, financial support, and information. These collaborations will do ‘whatever it takes’ to improve the educational and developmental outcomes for children in their communities.
