Helping students thrive in school, no matter if they're learning from home or back in the classroom.


The Promise Partnership is working to ensure that Utah students are ready for a lifetime of learning. In collaboration with the Utah State Board of Education, we’ve built Stay Safe, Stay Connected for families who have experienced the most disconnect from school since the COVID-19 pandemic began. With the help of dozens of community members and organizations, we are committed to helping Utah families support their children’s learning.

Get Involved

The past year looked incredibly different for students throughout Salt Lake County, whether they were in the classroom or learning from home. More students than ever are participating in summer school and summer programs to get back on track. Stay Safe, Stay Connected helps kids find summer programs and distance learning opportunities so they’re on par with their classmates, no matter what their post-pandemic summer looks like. Utah 211 can help parents get connected with:

  • • Academic programs to best suit their child's needs

  • • Referrals for organizations that help with rent assistance, food, mental health support, and more

  • • Internet and technology access

We can't ensure that Utah students are thriving in school without your help. Get involved with Stay Safe, Stay Connected.
