When St. Croix non-profit Project Promise launched its flagship Caterpillar Project to provide a full range of programming for a group of at-risk youth, it made community service an integral part of the program. The COVID-19 pandemic has not stopped this. In fact, it is the focus of their current efforts! With the goal of creating and implementing a community service project that can potentially impact the entire St. Croix community, the “Caterpillars” have completed Heart to Heart International’s COVID-19 Youth Ambassador program.

Project Promise’s Caterpillar students drove across America this summer to make an impact on communities outside of the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The Caterpillars touched down in New York with stops  in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, and California


Project Promise announced their gifting of close to $10,000 to educate 30 children in South Africa for an entire year.

During this trip, O’Reilly decided to sponsor two children but upon return to St. Croix, she raised the funds to sponsor all the children.

When Resa O’Reilly, the founder and president of St. Croix non-profit Project Promise, travels, she loves doing service projects that positively impact the local community at her destination. So, when Resa received a phone call from a like-minded Houston mom, she got quite excited. Lereca Monik and her daughter LeReine—a 7-year-old model, philanthropist and speaker nicknamed “Cookie”—were planning to spend Christmas in St. Croix. While in town they wanted to do a community service project to impact local kids in need. Could Project Promise assist? Yes, of course!


When Resa O’Reilly, founder and president of St. Croix non-profit Project Promise, plans a vacation, she never makes it “just about her.” As someone who is absolutely dedicated to Project Promise’s vision of bringing about positive change in our world, she always looks for ways to make a positive impact on the local children while she is there. O’Reilly’s recent birthday trip to Cuba was an excellent example of this.
