Volunteer with Promise the Children
Please join others and volunteer with Promise the Children to help us advocate for the growing number of children whose parents are increasingly challenged to pay for childcare, quality early education, health care and modest housing.
We are mainly staffed with volunteers who update the website, write blogs and Facebook posts, newsletters, Tweets and serve on the Board of Directors.
Please contact us if you can volunteer to help Promise The Children. We are especially looking for help with:
- researching creative ways to offer quality childcare at minimum expense
- researching what preschool children should learn and how this can be taught
- telling us a success story about a preschool preparing a child for kindergarten
- writing blog and Facebook posts about the challenges faced by children and their parents
- sharing your thoughts on zero tolerance and restorative justice discipline policies
- help with fund raising

Sign up for Action Alerts
Would you like to join us and save the safety net programs for U.S. children whose parents have low earnings? Most parents are not earning enough to pay for safe childcare, adequate nutrition, modest housing and health care. Promise the Children has an email alert network that invites you to get involved as little or as much as you can.
We do the research.
We build relationships with key national and state organizations.
We give you basic information that you need to email, write, or call policy makers, usually with links to more in-depth details about the issue.
You receive emails about important issues affecting children and, when you can, take action!
You let us know when something is happening in your state so that we can follow up and let other Children’s Advocates know how they can have a local impact.
