Young people are the future of our community and our world. The El Monte Promise Foundation believes that access and opportunity should be available to all students. We are committed to bringing together the resources and support that students need to reach their fullest potential
To make a great dream come true, the first
requirement is a great capacity to dream; the second is persistence.”
– Cesar Chavez
We have various opportunities for youth to further their academic, personal and professional goals. Students interested in saving money for college can browse our Scholar Savings Program and our financial education programming. Our Youth & Student Committee provides a platform for young people to engage in community work and develop leadership skills. As students enter college, they have the opportunity to join the Rio Hondo Ambassador Program, a partnership between the Foundation and Rio Hondo College that provides work-study eligible students to work with the Foundation and receive career development training.
