At City of Promise, we are committed to
a child-centered approach of educational support.
First, we honor parents as the experts and most important educators of their children, and we respect them as the key decision-makers for their children’s success. Second, our presence in the neighborhood builds trust and accountability that make all the difference in student achievement. On a typical day, we monitor student attendance, help with homework, and take students for activities offered by agencies in town. We also help parents in their efforts to find employment or health services, and we spend plenty of time in the garden and Westhaven Community Center where activities are hosted by our team or partner organizations.
