What is A Promise Neighborhood?
The Promise Neighborhood program was created by the U.S. Department of Education with a vision that all children and youth growing up in Promise Neighborhoods have access to great schools and strong systems of family and community support that will prepare them to attain an excellent education and successfully transition to college and a career.
