America's Promise

But statistics show that our young people are at risk. Clearly, we have much work to do.

Research shows — and experience proves — that children need five fundamental resources in order to thrive. We call them the Five Promises:

  • caring adults
  • safe places
  • healthy start
  • effective education
  • opportunities to help others

Mobilizing Americans to make young people an urgent national priority, we are working to ensure that every child receives every promise. Because joint, concerted effort is the only way to reach that goal, we build cross-sector partnerships involving communities, business, government, nonprofits, donors, parents, volunteers and young people themselves.

Center for the Improvement of Child Caring (CICC)

Thirty-two years of dedication and focused research has proven CICC as one of the largest and most influential parenting and parenting education organizations.

We believe that the greatest gift that can be given to the children of America – to the children of the world – is the gift of effective parenting. When children are effectively parented, they feel better about themselves and their abilities. They enter school excited and ready to learn. And, they are more likely to both achieve to their fullest potential at school and to make positive contributions to community life.

These effectively parented children are also more prone, as they become adults, to be healthy, law-abiding citizens, and to have successful careers and family lives.

So, the gift of effective parenting is one that keeps on giving!

Communities In Schools

Communities In Schools is anchor to the nation's leading community-based organization helping young people stay in school and prepare for life.

Stand Up

High school students have big dreams for the future. They want to change the world. They want lives with a sense of purpose. They want jobs that are exciting and rewarding.

But our high school system is failing them and us. It's not preparing them with the technical know-how, intelligence, and problem solving skills needed to jumpstart their careers and to live out their dreams. And America is not being prepared for a strong future. Change is possible. A broken system is not necessarily a mark of a broken spirit. A system doesn't build schools. People do. And we the people are in a position to improve them.

We will STAND UP for great high schools that prepare all students well. We will STAND UP for the hopes and dreams of America's young people. We will STAND UP for America's future.

Teachers involve parents in schoolwork (TIPS)

Teachers have helped design, implement, and test a teacher-parent partnership process called Teachers Involve Parents in Schoolwork (TIPS) Interactive Homework. With TIPS, any teacher can regularly, and relatively easily, help all families stay informed and involved in their children's learning activities at home, and help all students complete homework that should promote greater success in school.

TIPS features homework assignments that require students to talk to someone at home about something interesting that they are learning in class. TIPS helps solve some important problems with homework:

  • It helps all families become involved, not just the few who know how to discuss math or science or other subjects.
  • It makes homework the student's responsibility and does not ask parents to "teach" subjects or skills that they are not prepared to teach.
  • It asks students to share and enjoy their work, ideas, and progress with their families.
  • It allows families to comment and request other information from teachers in a section for home-to-school communication.

Family Friendly Schools

Family engagement. Parent involvement. Student achievement. As an educator, you hear these words on a daily basis, but perhaps you're struggling to find real solutions for improvement.

Family Friendly Schools is a family engagement process that provides a proven, clear path to success. And because Family Friendly Schools was developed by educators, we understand the challenges you face every day so that no child is left behind.
