LeBron James is keeping busy during the offseason.
The LeBron James Family Foundation is launching a new program to help adults who dropped out of school earn their high school equivalency diplomas.
Just weeks after announcing the foundation will partner with the University of Akron to award college scholarships to students in LeBron’s "I Promise" program, the organization has revealed it will partner with Project Learn of Summit County to assist the parents of children in the foundation's mentorship program in earning their GEDs.
According to the Northeast Ohio Media Group, the "I Promise, Too" program participants will be able to take GED classes and the test for free. They will also receive laptops to keep if they finish the program, a letter from James, and parking and bus passes to cover the cost of getting to class.
“We are so excited about the I Promise, Too program because a huge part of our foundation's work (with children) centers around parent involvement," Michele Campbell, executive director of the LeBron James Family Foundation, said in a news release. "This is an opportunity to help our parents make strides in their own academic careers so they are better equipped to help our students keep their educational promises.”
