We have the privilege to partner with schools, teachers, counselors, and administrative teams across West Contra Costa County to build a college-going and graduating culture throughout the Richmond community. Here are a list of Richmond Promise eligible schools we partner with to help promote college resources, student support, scholarships, student finance, and much more.
West Contra Costa Unified School District:
Community & Higher-Education Partners
Recognizing removing financial barriers is just one part of the equation for college success. Richmond Promise is a unified effort between the City of Richmond, West Contra Costa Unified School District, Contra Costa College, University of California, Cal State University Systems, CBO’s, and the Richmond community to address primary barriers to college access and success. These institutional partners work together to exchange ideas, align and leverage resources, provide infrastructure, and set policies to create seamless pathways to support the post-secondary success of Richmond young people, particularly low-income, first-generation students.
