dc.description.abstractThis paper addresses two issues. One concerns the holistic program of the Promise Neighborhood with its comprehensive “cradle-to-college” strategy that seeks to help break the cycle of generational and neighborhood poverty. The second considers the inclusion of arts and its benefits in the all-encompassing strategy of the program. Through analyzing the Promise Neighborhood initiative and the potential promise that exists within, I seek to show the role of art within the program and how it helps foster a higher quality education for children while creating community and civic leadership. Teaching art and expression improves mental health, teaches kids to be citizens and leaders, and bridges the gaps between different races, communities, and backgrounds. The Promise Neighborhood’s integral inclusion of arts distinguishes it from other more narrowly defined programs. [From Introduction]en_US
