GET INVOLVED TODAY!

The challenges that the Virgin Islands' at-risk youth face can be daunting. Many live in poverty, some have learning disabilities, others have suffered abuse or have participated in risky behaviors. Project Promise was formed to help at-risk youth in St. Croix, by providing them with tools and support they need to get and stay on a positive path and to change the trajectory of their lives. 
 
Project Promise takes a holistic approach, an approach designed to support and empower the whole child. From what we’ve seen since launching our programming, our intensive, holistic approach works! The benefits of the programs we offer are to counteract these challenges that our youth face. Implementing these programs takes time, money, dedicated staff, and volunteers. We invite you to get involved and help Project Promise changes lives for at-risk youth and positively impact communities in the Virgin Islands and beyond.

Ways to Get Involved

Sponsor A Child 

Project Promise is excited to announce the launch of the Empowered Me program, a holistic enrichment program designed to empower local students ages 10 to 18 with the tools and attitudes they need to be winners in life.

 

Participants will attend engaging Saturday sessions held at our newly-renovated downtown Christiansted facility. During each 12-week session, the age-group-specific classes and activities will center around six programming pillars: Personal Wellness, Financial Literacy, Career Exploration, Creative Expression, Cultural Awareness and Community Service.

 

Who can enroll?

While the Empowered Me program is open to all area youth, 50% of slots are reserved specifically for low to moderate income families.

 

Why do we need your support?

With your help, no child will be turned away from the Empowered Me program due to lack of funds.

Thanks to video conferencing, guest speakers can be located anywhere in the world. As a guest speaker you’ll have 45 minutes to an hour to talk about your career, presenting it as a viable option for the students to consider for themselves. Why did you choose this career? What are the educational requirements for entering this field? What road did you take to get there? What is your typical day like? What do you like most and least about your career? Etc.
