Home > Projects > The Six Promises

Our Promise – We make six promises to every child we serve:

Our Promise #1 : Long– Term Commitment
From Kindergarten to high school graduation no matter what.

Our Promise #2 : Trained Volunteers
All Friends are volunteers who have finished background checks, classes and monthly trainings.

Our Promise #3 : Positive Expectations
Our children will succeed. Because we believe in them, they will grow to  believe in themselves.

Our Promise #4 : Manageable Numbers
Each Friend works with no more than one child, spending at least 3-4 hours a week with the child.

Our Promise #5 : Experience= Opportunities
A world of opportunity has been hidden from these children. We help them discover it.

Our Promise #6 : Evaluation
We make a real and measurable difference in every child’s life. Each of our promises is individually important. Taken together, they represent a comprehensive and integrated approach, which includes professional evaluations of our work.

Every Sisters child and parent should know: the work we began is a promise from Circle of Friends to you. It is our promise to you the child:

  • a promise to believe in you;
  • a promise to give every child the hope for a bright future –  bright with unlimited potential;
  • a promise to respect the family;
  • a promise that we stand ready to do everything we can to ensure you can concentrate on what’s really important: being a kid.

Our work is ongoing and we continue to strive for better. Each of us, under a committed leadership remain committed to building this program, coordinating our efforts, and addressing barriers that stand in the way of any child’s ability to reach their highest aspirations.
