America’s Promise Alliance is a coalition dedicated to improving the lives of children and youth, bringing together more than 400 national organizations representing nonprofits, businesses, communities, educators and policymakers. America’s Promise was founded under the premise of five “promises” considered the fundamental resources young people need to succeed: Caring Adults, Safe Places, A Healthy Start, Effective Education, and Opportunities to Help Others.

The ASAS program is in the process of solidifying a partnership with USF’s department of education. The primary focus for this partnership is to seek qualified part time staff as counselors and tutors to work with ASAS students.
Another partnership that we are excited about is with Coaching Corp. The purpose of Coaching Corps is to improve the educational, social and physical outcomes for kids in struggling communities through the power of service and sports. This is done by bridging the gap between sports-focused afterschool programs that need committed, trained coaches and volunteers who wish to gain leadership skills and mentor youth through coaching athletics.
