I met an engaging student at my alma matter reunion this fall, at a small liberal arts college outside of Minnesota.

She was a geology major, and mentioned she was on full scholarship and came from a very poor background/broken family. She said something about a "promise" program at her school in St. Paul (Central HS), and how that had made all the difference. She was the first in her family to attend college.

We talked at length about her studies and research, and we were very impressed with this young lady, and hoping to stay in touch in the future.

It appears your program is working. Kudos to the people of Minneapolis/St. Paul.
