Promise South Salt Lake works in partnership with United Way and many other organizations to implement specialized summer programming 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 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, including the Hser Ner Moo Community and Welcome Center 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 Cherie 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. The promises, representing our highest hopes for our community, are: 1) Every child has the opportunity to attend and to graduate from college; 2) Every resident has a safe, clean home and neighborhood, and 3) Everyone has the opportunity be healthy and to prosper.
