I Promise Village

with the Lebron James Family Foundation

We're honored to announce our new partnership with the LeBron James Family Foundation and its groundbreaking I PROMISE School in Akron, Ohio.

The I PROMISE Village by Graduate Hotels will provide shelter, safety and support for I PROMISE School families in need.


"Community and education are at the core of what we do," says our founder and CEO Ben Weprin. "This project is a monumental next step for us and LeBron and his Foundation’s commitment to the future of the students and their families."

How We're Helping

Graduate is renovating a historic apartment building, thoughtfully redesigning the space for I PROMISE families. When it's ready next summer, the entire building will be donated to the organization, so they can continue supporting at-risk elementary students.
