The 5 Promises

The Five Promises are a framework put forth by America's Promise outlining five resources that all children need in their lives to be successful. Children who enjoy the cumulative and sustained effect of these promises in various contexts of their lives are far more likely to be academically successful, civically engaged and socially competent, regardless of their family income.
