You Can Bring Promise to Youth and FamiliesPromise Neighborhoods offer a strategic approach to helping kids reach their full potential
Helping Youth Become Leaders in their Lives, their Families and their Neighborhoods
MentorKids USA equips and empowers youth in under-served communities in the Phoenix area to become transformative leaders in their lives, their families and their communities, allowing those youth to reach their full potential. We offer support in academics, leadership development, spiritual development, and life skills.
In order to help kids, you also have to work with the community around them. Promise Neighborhoods bring together youth, families, mentors, volunteers, churches, local businesses and other partners in under-served communities with the purpose of creating long-term solutions to the challenges facing our youth.
