Near-Peer Ambassadors


The Richmond Promise Near-Peer Summer Ambassadors are current college students who advance the mission of the Richmond Promise and offer critical support to current students and incoming college freshmen by a) building early college awareness among middle-school summer school students in Richmond/West Contra Costa through near-peer college and career conversations and b) support a successful high school to college transition for new Richmond Promise scholarship recipients through a series of summer success workshops and one one-on-one peer advising.
