What follows in this booklet are descriptions of some of the 28 programs we are using to build and develop the Indianola Promise Community (IPC). These narrative summaries are told from the perspective of the individuals who are participating in these programs and helping us learn from their experiences.
The Indianola Promise Community (IPC) is a community-based initiative to provide children with the opportunity to succeed in school, graduate, and attend college. While it is sponsored by Delta Health Alliance, its many local partners include: Indianola School District, City of Indianola, Delta State University, B.B. King Museum, W.K.
