Maryland PROMISE will include the following:

  • Case management: coordination of services for youth and their families so that they can navigate through the services and supports available through the project and through the larger service delivery system for which they are eligible and which may be required to achieve desired outcomes.
  • Benefits counseling and financial education services: including ongoing information and training on SSA work incentives, eligibility requirements of various programs, earnings rules, and financial education or coaching.
  • Career and work-based learning experiences: including at least one paid work experience in an integrated setting before leaving high school.
  • Family training and information: including training to support youth education and employment goals, and education, job training and employment for other family members.

Maryland's Promoting the Readiness of Minors in Supplemental Security Income (PROMISE) provides services at no-cost to youth ages 14-16 who are receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits and their families.  The goal of these services is to help youth and their families get an education or training, find work, and access other resources to reach their goals.
