Promise Indiana Wabash County

Bright futures begin with big dreams. Promise Indiana Wabash County supports every student to pursue education beyond high school.

How it Works

Start a Savings Account

Promise Indiana Wabash County makes it easy for families to start a CollegeChoice 529 account for future education. Wabash County YMCA deposits the first $25 to kick-start savings for students in Preschool through 3rd grade at Manchester Elementary School, Metro North Elementary School, Southwood Elementary School, Sharp Creek Elementary School, LH Carpenter Early Learning Center, O.J. Neighbours Elementary School, and St. Bernard's Catholic School.

Discover College and Careers

Early experiences help students visualize their futures. At school, students learn about college and career discovery as they explore the campus of Manchester University. Every year, Promise Indiana Wabash County hosts an event at Manchester University called "Walk into my Future". Over 1,200 students and volunteers organize this large event. Faculty and college students lead activities and exercises to build students' excitement for education beyond high school.

Ask Your Champions

Students benefit from having champions who encourage them. Champions can be neighbors, friends, grandparents, aunts, uncles, coaches, or teachers. Students ask their champions to add to their savings for education through out the school year.

Earn a Community Match

Students who raise $25 from champions earn an additional $25 match from the community to help their savings grow.

How can families get involved?

All students begin to dream about their future when they start school. They need early experiences, champions, and community support to achieve their dreams. Click below to learn more.
