LeBron James Expands “I Promise” Campaign to Help Ohio Parents Get Their GEDs

LeBron James

LeBron James has had quite an impressive summer, and for reasons that have nothing to do with basketball.

The Cleveland Cavaliers superstar quietly announced yet another academic partnership last week — one that will provide support for parents of children in his academic mentorship program who want to obtain their GEDs.

James and the University of Akron made waves last month when they announced that they had partnered to provide four-year scholarships to qualifying students in James’ “I PROMISE” program — a partnership that could help an estimated 2,300 children.

Now, James has partnered with Project Learn of Summit County, an organization dedicated to adult education, to make sure he’s helping the parents of the children, as well. The partnership will provided parents who have enrolled their children in the LeBron James Family Foundation’s mentorship with support in obtaining their GEDs.

The “I PROMISE, Too” program, as it’s called, covers class and test fees and provides free bus passes and tablets. (Additional prizes are available for good work.)
