Promise Neighborhoods is a place-based initiative created by the federal Department of Education and inspired by the Harlem Children’s Zone. The vision of this program is that all children and youth growing up in a Promise Neighborhood have access to a continuum of 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 purpose of Promise Neighborhoods is to significantly improve the educational and developmental outcomes of children and youth in our most distressed communities, and to transform those communities.

The Promise Neighborhood Community Engagement Approach is community friendly and culturally competent. It has a couple of components including an educational/information campaign and survey. The Survey is available through a variety of means and in many home languages (Spanish, Vietnamese, Cambodian, Somali & Arabic). The Effort has an emphasis on going to the people to learn from them and start where people live.

Residents & Community Members from White Center Promise Zone, White Center Community Development Association, King County Housing Authority, Highline Public Schools, Southwest Youth and Family Services and Cambodian Cultural Alliance of Washington have been engaging parents over the past month and a half through a community survey. Parents are asked about what it takes for their children to be successful in school and life. Parents share their hopes for great schools and quality teachers where their children can feel supported to be successful and confident. Many parents share that their support networks include their parents, family members, caring professionals, church, and after school programs.  Neighborhood Mothers and Fathers also talk about the need for community centers, counseling programs, free activities for youth during the summer and tutoring programs.
