It’s time to once again call the nation together
to recommit to our nation’s children
Join Founding Chair, General Colin L. Powell (Ret.) and Chair, Mrs. Alma Powell on April 17-18 in New York City as America’s Promise Alliance marks its 20th Anniversary.
Recommit to Kids | The Summit for America's Future will honor progress that has been made in delivering the Five Promises and salute the champions who have been on the forefront of seeing that our country’s underserved children are a priority.
We call on all adults and the nation to recommit to the critical work that remains, which will be articulated in a new youth agenda laying out all that we must do to help every child realize their American dream.
