America’s Promise Alliance is the nation’s largest partnership organization dedicated to improving the lives of children and youth by raising awareness, supporting communities, and engaging in nonpartisan advocacy. Through its Grad Nation campaign, the Alliance harnesses the collective power of its partner network to mobilize Americans to end the high school dropout crisis and prepare young people for college and the 21st century workforce. Building on the legacy of our Founding Chairman General Colin Powell, the Alliance believes the success of our young people is grounded in the Five Promises – caring adults; safe places; a healthy start; an effective education; and opportunities to help others.

America’s Promise Alliance is a proud mobilization partner within the Ready by 21® National Partnership. Through our partnership we have committed to leveraging our respective assets and strengths to call for and support the changes needed in communities and states to improve the odds that young people will graduate high school ready for college, work and life. This partnership is important because we know that the positive impact on children and youth can be tremendous when we effectively marry the awareness raising, campaigning and convening power of the Alliance with the capacity-building expertise of the Ready by 21 National Partnership.
