The Promise Partnership

Not just beating the odds but changing them.

The Promise Partnership at UNB Saint John connects the university with the Saint John community to help combat poverty.

This initiative provides educational support and opportunities to youth in two of Saint John’s priority neighbourhoods.

Close ties with the community enriches the university by providing meaningful hands-on learning, volunteer, and personal growth experiences to UNB Saint John students.

UNB Saint John and the community together are helping to support the leaders of tomorrow.
