More about Promise…
Wisconsin is one of six sites nationwide participating in the U.S. Department of Education’s demonstration of a promising path to success for youth receiving SSI. Youth and families in Wisconsin Promise are starting to identify their educational and employment goals. They are starting to receive services to help them meet these goals. These services are outlined in a table that lists a menu of services that are available through Wisconsin Promise.
