About America’s Promise Alliance 

APA is an organization unlike any other, founded in 1997 by five U.S. Presidents and General Colin Powell we’re uniquely poised to create coalition and change on a national scale. Our goal is to bring the most inspiring youth-supporting organizations and leaders together in authentic community with one another, foster a commitment of radical support among leaders and organizations, and focus our efforts on both organizational improvement and building powerful coalitions for systemic change.  

About Our Next Chapter 

While we believe a shared learning and aligned action is essential, it does not happen on its own. It takes serious intentionality, design, and stewardship. Over nearly 3 decades, APA has had the privilege to be in conversation with some of the inspiring youth-supporting leaders across the nation. As a result, 2022 marks the launch of APA’s next chapter -- a reimagined Alliance that will seek to provide the infrastructure and stewardship necessary to ensure effective sharing and collaboration among youth-supporting organizations at national scale.
