LeBron James Family Foundation Akron I PROMISE Network
With a shared belief in the transformative power of education and a shared culture of family, Kent State has partnered with the LeBron James Family Foundation to collectively PROMISE to invest its time, talent, resources and attention into the kids of James’ hometown of Akron, Ohio.
Together, the more than 1400 Akron-area I PROMISE students are supported by both organizations through strategic programming, trusted relationships, and educational access and affordability; all of which contributes to the success trajectory of these talented youth and their abilities to become limitless change agents whose epic thinking, meaningful voice and invaluable outcomes, better our community and world.
