A Philanthropy Course For Kids

Social Promise is excited to partner with Junior Junior League at the New York Junior League to offer a FREE course for children designed to introduce them to a big word- philanthropy.

It has always been our mission at Social Promise to raise money to support St. Jude Children’s Home and Lacor Hospital.  These two institutions are doing amazing work in Gulu, Uganda to both help the people and further economic growth.  Partnering with organizations that have strong ties in the community helps promote long-term change.  Finding individuals dedicated to helping others is also vital to lasting change.

At Social Promise, it is our belief that young children have a natural ability to empathize and a strong inclination to help others.  For this reason, an important component of our mission is to introduce children to ways of helping others and allow them see that they too can make a difference in the life of another human being.  Our ultimate goal?  To foster  a lifelong commitment to philanthropy.  If charity begins at an early age, it becomes a systematic part of everyday life.

Partnering with the Junior Junior League was an organic decision as our missions are closely aligned.  The Junior Junior League hosts Get Involved Volunteer Early (GIVE) Events to teach the principles of philanthropy and promote volunteerism to preschool and elementary aged New York City children.
