They say it takes a village to raise a child. We believe it takes a City of Champions. In 2003, a group of concerned citizens, nonprofit organizations and community leaders came together to make a sustainable difference in the lives of Brockton youth.
We are comprised of a Steering Committee and Five Promise Teams. Each Promise Team collaborates to build awareness of that Promise in the community while also targeting specific young people in special need of those resources. We work closely with the school system, families and other leaders to help coordinate that effort in our community.
Brockton’s Promise provides community news, events and resources on its website. Our Community Asset map helps community members pinpoint specific services within Brockton.
Brockton was named one of the 100 Best Communities for Young People in the United States in 2005, 2008 and 2010. This prestigious honor was awarded by America’s Promise.
