A model for the program is the Harlem Children's zone.

The program director is T. Denise Johnson. [1] The founding director was Sarad Davenport. [2]

Their focus is to "commit to create a community where all children are valued and have the support and the tools they need to make decisions that lead to their success." [3]In May 2012, City of Promise announced that it wanted to start a cradle-to-college-to-career pathway for children. [4]
