We envision a partnership between our schools, our families and communities working together to provide a safe, stable and secure environment that promotes and models respect, positive self-esteem, academic achievement and communication while appreciating and affirming individual differences and a commitment to helping all children and youth be life-long learners.
Promise South Salt Lake works in partnership with United Way and many other organizations to implement specialized common agendas and program maps based on what the data tell us, to provide model/evidence-based curriculums, expanded learning & positive youth development opportunities that support academic, physical, civic, social, and emotional youth success. Activities in South Salt Lake include high intensity, literacy-focused afterschool programs; structured recreation and service opportunities; intentional reciprocal cultural opportunities; and a broad range of enriching experiences that utilize a cradle to career continuum that improves educational and developmental youth outcomes. Our work is accomplished in the 14 South Salt Lake Neighborhood Centers and throughout the community. We articulate our work as promises that represent our highest hopes for our community.
Based on very specific research and models of other successful communities, Mayor Wood and the Promise South Salt Lake Leadership Team formulated our goals-considering the work that is being done in other high achieving communities, but created with South Salt Lake children, families, residents, and seniors in mind.
