Investing in Tomorrow, Today!
The Mission of Tomorrow’s Promise Foundation is to help youth, ages 7-19, discover the unique gifts they each have in order for them to grow into successful adults. These objectives can be accomplished through interactive activities which promote self-awareness, confidence, health & wellness, and leadership; helping our youth learn how to manage resources adequately while also making empowering life choices.
Our vision is to reduce the incidents of youth contact with the criminal justice system by 10% over the next 3 years. We seek strategic partnerships in communities that will improve support systems for families in communities of color, provide educational programs and opportunities for self-discovery and self-expression through mentorship or interactive workshops. Our aim is to be the standard of excellence in guiding, molding and influencing youth into the community leaders of tomorrow.
who we are
Tomorrow's Promise Foundation was founded by Bill Wallace in 2017 as a way to offer youth access to enhance their quality of life skills. Bill grew up in a lower to middle-class neighborhood however by the age of 15 years old Bill entered the ranks of discouraging statistics about young boys raised in broken homes. After being tried as an adult and sentenced to prison as a juvenile, Bill initiated the necessary life changes which ultimately earned him a Bachelor's degree in Business Management and Master's degree in Humanities. Knowing firsthand how young persons struggle with identity, self-discovery and expression, Bill's passion is to now lead the effort in helping youth in this vital transformation. Bill understood that many youths growing up with damaged family structures would rarely get the opportunities he had been fortunate enough to encounter through higher education, guidance and community support systems. Today he leads the charge of Tomorrow's Promise Foundation vision to guide, mold and influence the youth of today into the community leaders of tomorrow.
what we offer
The need for Tomorrow’s Promise Foundation is evidenced by the US crisis of mass incarceration. 85% of juveniles in prison are from broken homes. The statistics go on to mirror the ugly news reports, stereotypes and even our own assumptions and fears. Young men from broken homes are four times as likely to live in poverty and need emotional or behavioral help. Sadly, this same demographic is also plagued by food insecurity. 6.8 million youths ages 10 to 17 live in a household with limited or uncertain access to food. An unstable diet can have the consequences of malnourishment, which often leads to developmental problems that can affect everything from vital signs to mental health.
Tomorrow’s Promise Foundation seeks to reverse these statistics by solving the problems of identity anxiety, negative self-perception, ineffective communication, fear of public speaking, financial illiteracy, bullying, obesity as well as drug and gang awareness. We advocate for and provide resources to address housing and food insecurities. We introduce youth to programming that emphasizes Responsibility, Accountability and Productivity (or what we refer to as R.A.P. Sessions). We offer Public Speaking & Communication classes, Health & Wellness workshops, Financial Literacy course as well as our signature Project: Self Awareness Program (S.A.P).
This is one of the simplest ways to help out our cause. We believe the best way for our initiatives to be successful is for the community to actively get involved. This is an easy and efficient way of contributing to the great work we do at Tomorrow's Promise Foundation. Get in touch with any questions about how you can Volunteer Your Time today.
