We recognize that when parents and children have the opportunity to succeed, families and the community around them are able to thrive, as well. Two-generation programs help parents gain new skills while their children receive high-quality education.
Families are best positioned to thrive when parents and children have the opportunity to succeed together. Two-generation programs help parents gain new skills while their children receive high-quality education. That’s why we created a Parent Achievement Zone to help families succeed together.
In partnership with The Service Collaborative of Western New York, Buffalo Promise Neighborhood taps into national AmeriCorps service members to positively impact students and create a better school environment. Through the Service Collaborative’s ABLE program (AmeriCorps Builds Better Lives through Education), a team of AmeriCorps Members routinely provide academic support and mentorship to BPN students.
The Buffalo Promise Neighborhood Community Affairs program was born through a desire to help in development and facilitation of a sustainable contingent of residents, school officials, faith based leaders, block club members, business owners, not-for-profit community organizations and elected officials that work together to continue to build and create a vibrant, safe neighborhood and community for all.
Our volunteers play an essential role in helping to deliver the Promise throughout the Buffalo Promise Neighborhood. Our volunteers work side-by-side with teachers, students, families and our community. BPN volunteers come from throughout Western New York and are M&T Employees, community members, past students, corporate citizens, and college students.
