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.
All young people need and deserve support and guidance from caring adults including ongoing, secure relationships with guardians and parents as well as positive relationships with teachers, mentors, and neighbors.
All young people need and deserve to be physically and emotionally safe wherever they are.
A Healthy Start
All young people need healthy bodies, healthy minds, and healthful habits resulting from regular health care and needed treatment, good nutrition and exercise, health education and healthy role models.
An Effective Education
All young people need and deserve the intellectual development, motivation, and marketable skills that equip them for successful work and lifelong learning. These result from having quality learning environments, challenging expectations, and consistent guidance.
Opportunities to Serve
Every child will have the opportunity to serve by making a difference in the community and helping others.
