About Us

Forward Promise is a national program funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) to support culturally-responsive practices that buffer the effects of historical and systemic trauma on boys and young men of color. Forward Promise facilitates grants to organizations throughout the United States, provides technical assistance and field-building support, and disseminates timely research to those seeking to positively impact the lives of boys and young men of color (BYMOC). Forward Promise’s mission is to undergird, strengthen, and stimulate the creation of supportive networks and relationships that surround BYMOC and their families – healthy village-making. We envision healthy villages and a larger society that raise and empower BYMOC to heal, grow and thrive.
