America's Promise

America's Promise is a foundation started by Colin Powell in 1997 to help children from all socioeconomic sectors after a conference about the subject. The program has 5 simple goals for its young beneficiaries:

  1. Ongoing relationships with caring adults in their lives - parents, mentors, tutors, or coaches;
  2. Safe places with structured activities during nonschool hours;
  3. Healthy start and future;
  4. Marketable skills through effective education; and
  5. Opportunities to give back through community service.
