Four months since Hurricane Maria devastated St. Croix, many children are still dealing with the trauma and uncertainty that the storm has brought. Many at risk children literally remained in the dark for months, while others lost their homes, and all their belongings. With eight condemned public schools on island, the daily routine of school is a thing of the past. Class instruction has been reduced to four hours, and as a result students will be on a split session schedule indefinitely.
Project Promise is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of at-risk youth on St. Croix. From life coaching and personal wellness to academic tutoring, community service, cultural programs, family services and more, Project Promise gives St. Croix's at-risk youth an opportunity for positive change in a safe and nurturing environment, by introducing them to our natural resources, our history and culture, and our most valuable resource, themselves all while helping them heal.
Project Promise is dedicated to bringing about positive change in our world. Our vision is to give at-risk youth the tools and support they need to live healthier lives. Our objectives are to enhance their decision-making and conflict resolution skills, enable them to discover their vocational interests, and ultimately integrate them into society and our economy. Our goal is to inspire a future of excellence and success for youth throughout the Virgin Islands community and the world
