What is the Willamette Promise?
Who We Are
We are a dual credit and career and college readiness program specializing in university credits, advising, and career-related activities. We also partner with industry to help students train for the right career for them, whether that be apprenticeships, trade schools, on-site learning, college, or university.
The Willamette Promise wants to make sure that students see the connection to their future in each classroom and every experience. Our goal is that all students will understand their options and have the skills and knowledge to make independent and informed decisions to support their future. We are there to help support them as they work toward their future.
Our Dual Credit program offers over 30 dual credit classes in a variety of subject areas to high school students in courses transcribed with Western Oregon University (WOU) and Oregon Institute of Technology (OT) that helps students focus on post-secondary education and training.
Our Career Readiness program offers support in bridging the gap between education and industry by helping school districts implement their vision for career and college readiness through career fairs, mock interviews/resume building events, and industry-based guest speakers.
Control Tower is a regional program offered through Willamette ESD, that allows School Districts and Industries a way to more effectively manage by connecting students with employers for quality work-based learning.
