Investing In Youth

Welcome to the Promise Neighborhoods Training and Technical Assistance Center (the Center), a website designed for Promise Neighborhoods grantees and any community that is interested in improving the cradle-to-career results for its children.

The Center supports the Promise Neighborhood vision that all children and youth growing up in Promise Neighborhoods have access to great schools and strong systems of family and community support that will prepare them to attain an excellent education and successfully transition to college and a career. The Center also extends its resources to communities that have not received federal grant funding to plan or implement their Promise Neighborhoods continuum of solutions.
