San Diego Promise Zone - Grants & Research Associate
The Promise Zone initiative was created to address the challenges in areas with deep and persistent poverty, while recognizing and leveraging the many assets already in place within the community. Today, the neighborhood you grow up in impacts your odds of graduating high school, whether you are likely to face chronic disease, and your lifelong economic opportunities. The initiative’s promise is to co-create an ecosystem of opportunity and investment through collaboration that addresses systemic racism and inequities to improve the quality of life of Promise Zone residents. The Promise Zone aims to transform these under-resourced communities in San Diego by 1) improving educational opportunities; 2) creating a priority of safety; 3) increasing economic activities; 4) creating jobs; 5) increasing access to affordable housing; and 6) increasing access to healthcare and healthy foods. The goal is to ensure that everyone has equitable access to opportunities.
