The Impact Network for America’s Promise

The Impact Network, an alliance of young leaders from across the nation, unites and empowers youth to take action through and with the support of America's Promise Alliance partners to address the challenges facing their communities. Impact Network members are crucial contributors to the principal goal of America’s Promise — leveraging the Five Promises framework to help America’s most disadvantaged youth and contribute to the Grad Nation campaign. Through the Network, young leaders amplify their impact by joining a national movement of civically-engaged peers who are taking action working within networks and communities to make a difference. The Impact Network is the umbrella for all youth-related opportunities offered by America’s Promise.

Youth Insight Posts

America’s Promise Alliance promotes youth engagement as part of our Grad Nation campaign by encouraging and supporting our networks and partners to involve young people in community change, and sharing local stories of youth-led action with a national audience to build broader support. Youth Insight Posts highlight the leadership roles that young people from across the country are planning in the Grad Nation movement. 

Youth Leadership

America's Promise models youth involvement by having two youth leaders on both our Board of Directors and Alliance Trustees. Each youth is a full voting member of the leadership body and plays a valuable role in the strategic direction of the organization.
