“The San Marcos Promise taught me that the adult world is more than being able to send an email and have a good handshake. It is about having your elevator pitch ready, understanding the importance of networking and gaining relevant work experience outside your major.

As a first-generation college graduate, navigating college and the professional world was a challenge I wasn’t sure I could take. The San Marcos Promise gave me the tools and support to feel confident when I stepped into my new role in the professional world.” -Ari Arango, TSMP Promise Ambassador Alumni

The first phase of the Ambassador Program is a volunteer experience at our Future Center during this upcoming summer. At the conclusion of your summer experience, you will have the chance to provide feedback to our team about the program and your future as a Promise Ambassador.

“Being a part of The San Marcos Promise has allowed me to expand and learn leadership skills as well as give back to the community of San Marcos through various events. I am a first generation college student and I have been so fortunate to be a part of an organization that enabled me to pursue my higher education.”
