Kelsey Peronto is a Seattle Promise Outreach Specialist who works with Ingraham and Ballard High School students to apply for and participate in the Seattle Promise Program.
Kelsey believes every student deserves the opportunity to pursue a high-quality college education, regardless of race, gender, income, citizenship, or background. The Seattle Promise allows her to support Seattle-area students in pursuing their college ambitions and discovering who they are in meaningful, rewarding careers.
Kelsey helped see the first cohort of Seattle Promise students at North Seattle College through the program when she joined the team in 2018. Since then, Seattle Promise has expanded its reach and she has had the pleasure of supporting hundreds of students and families from Ingraham and Ballard.
Kelsey spent the first ten years of her career in nonprofit organizations serving young people experiencing trauma and homelessness. She believes access to education is a right that supports young people in healthy, whole futures.
Kelsey holds a Bachelor's Degree in Human Services from Western Washington University.
