Great job! The students at Cleveland Metropolitan School District‘s George Washington Carver celebrated Black History Month with a special program this week, including this group singing Michael Jackson’s “Man in the Mirror.”
Snow-free sidewalks make it easier and safer for children to get to school. Promise Neighborhood volunteers are invited to help get the word out from 9 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Feb. 28.
Volunteers will help Get2SchoolCLE and others deliver bags as friendly reminders to encourage residents to shovel their sidewalks.
We will gather at 9 a.m. at Alfred E. Benesch Elementary.
As Promise Neighborhood residents lead the change they want to see in Cleveland Central, the Promise Neighborhood has updated the Ambassador program and started a new program for Resident Leaders.
Resident Leaders are community advocates and supporters of Cleveland Central Promise Neighborhood who engage in various ways to strengthen the neighborhood. (No training is required to be a Resident Leader, but these leaders are welcome to participate in available training.)
Promise Ambassador Specialists also are advocates and supporters of the Cleveland Central neighborhood. They also have participated in Promise-provided training and committed to working directly with the Promise Neighborhood organization at Sisters of Charity Foundation and its partners to improve the quality of life for residents in the Central community.
In the updated program, Promise Ambassadors are involved in a specific area or areas of interest connected to the Promise mission (early learning, K-8, high school, college and career or resident leadership) and be provided ongoing professional development in that category.
Resident Leaders and Ambassador Specialists are expected to contribute to their area of focus by:
- Promoting community resources and services
- Volunteering a minimum number of hours to related activities
- Developing and maintaining positive relationships with key stakeholders
- Distributing, connecting, and contributing to related Promise Neighborhood work
- Assuming a leadership role with an organization, board or committee involved in their area of focus

Our own, Delores Gray, was featured in a recent issue of Women of Distinction Magazine. Delores is a tireless community leader in Cleveland Central and one of the original Promise Ambassadors. She was recognized with a plaque featuring the article at the Promise Advisory Board meeting in January. We’re glad to see Delores recognized for all her great work!
