What is the mission of your organization?
Springfield Promise Neighborhood was founded in 2010 around the thought that engaging the community and activating the talents of our neighbors would help us all lift up our children. Our initiative is just one of many Promise Neighborhoods operating in cities all over the country. Unlike others, Springfield Promise is one of only a few Promise Neighborhood initiatives that began with only local funding. While all of these efforts seek to make a difference in our most economically stressed neighborhoods, our work has a unique asset-based approach:

1. Commit to the public school system and working with the Springfield City School District to serve students in need
2. Spark resident-led social change, working with neighbors as they build their community into what they want it to be
3. Create a culture of aspiration, in which it is normal to succeed, to be smart, and to be kind
4. Amplify the resources, talents, gifts, and skills of residents and expert organizations to build a shared and unified community.

Which social causes (up to 3 choices) does your agency address through its programming? *

Any comments about your selections you would like to share with the student philanthropists?
Our mission is focused on students, and by extension, their parents, families, and the neighborhood they live in. This includes a lot of events, opportunities, and resources throughout the year.
