Getting Started as a Promise Leader

A Promise Leader is a committed supporter of Sandy Hook Promise's mission and approach who is willing to go beyond activity at the individual level and bring Sandy Hook Promise programs and initiatives to a larger audience within their community. Community is purposefully defined broadly and could include their child's school, college or university, workplace, place of worship, civic organization, youth serving agency, nonprofit organization, or another group, club, organization or institution.

Each Promise Leader will look different depending on their area of interest, network, culture of the organization or institution, and the time they have available. Many of Sandy Hook Promise's Promise Leader activities can be customized to meet the unique needs of your organization or institution and can be done in just a few hours a month.
