The Five Promises are the fundamental resources that young people need to succeed. Everything we do as America's Promise Alliance is built around the framework of ensuring that more young people experience more of the Promises.
Children who receive at least four of the Five Promises are much more likely than those who experience only one or zero Promises to succeed academically, socially and civically. They are more likely to avoid violence, contribute to their communities and achieve high grades in school.
Receiving at least four of the Five Promises also appears to mitigate gaps across racial and economic boundaries. To experience the full power of the Promises, young people must experience these critical supports throughout their lives — in their families, at schools and out in their communities.
