Liberty’s Promise runs 18 after-school programs of civic engagement in 14 locations around the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area for low-income, high school, immigrant youth. These programs run for 10 weeks in the spring (March-May) and again for 10 weeks in the fall (October-December). We invite guest speakers to our programs to inform students about college options, career opportunities and community involvement. Also, students have the opportunity to bond with their classmates on field trips to historic locations in the area while learning more about their community.

During the summer, we place our youth in eight-week paid professional internships in local businesses, non-profits and government agencies.
