New York State PROMISE announces launch of recruitment, training efforts

New York State PROMISE (Promoting the Readiness of Minors in Supplemental Security Income) is proud to announce the start of recruitment for the PROMISE program, a research initiative developed to improve transition-to-adulthood outcomes for eligible youth who receive supplemental security income Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

“We are thrilled to be starting the recruitment process for NYS PROMISE and are looking forward to this opportunity to work closely with so many local agencies to help eligible youth in our community develop the social, financial, and professional skills they need to excel academically and in the workforce,” said Joey DiPiazza, Transition Coordinator in the Albany School District.

NYS PROMISE is recruiting youth who receive SSI and are between the ages of 14 and 16 in the Capital Region. Invited youth and adults who meet eligibility requirements can choose to participate in NYS PROMISE and potentially receive services to achieve better outcomes. Eligible youth and their families will receive a personal invitation to participate and details about attending recruitment events in their region.

NYS PROMISE and its partners, including schools, parent centers, and service providers, will expand recruitment efforts to youth and their families in Western New York and New York City this fall. NYS PROMISE will recruit a total of 2,000 youth by April of 2016.
