The Promotor Pathway:
Students in middle and high school experiencing homelessness are often “on their own” without the support needed to succeed. Project Hope Alliance’s Promotor Pathway Program serves homeless 13-24 year-olds students, providing individualized, case-by-case support where it is needed most. Originally developed by the Latin American Youth Center (LAYC) in Washington, D.C., the program pairs each student with a Promotor, providing one-on-one intensive support, available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Promotores are professional intensive case managers who act as a combination of youth development workers, advocates and mentors, supplying: case management, regular check-ins, home visits, and connections to other needed resources. Promotors work on school sites and with local McKinney-Vento liaisons in order to coordinate services and strategy for homeless students.
Students who enter the Promotor Pathways Program have reduced their risky behaviors; improved their grades, attendance, and engagement – and start on the path to college or a career, beginning with high school graduation.
