Prince George Promise is a spinoff of the America’s Promise Program that was started by then-Secretary of State Colin Powell 1997. That model asked communities throughout America to make five basic promises to the youth of our country and dedicate resources to fulfilling those promises. They include

  1. Ensure that every child has an adult mentor in their life.
  2. Provide safe places for children during non-school hours.
  3. Provide a healthy start for every child.
  4. Provide marketable skills through effective education.
  5. Give children the opportunities to give back to the community through volunteering.
