Mission: Liberty's Promise supports young immigrants in need while encouraging them to be active and conscientious American citizens. Our programs aim to make the immigrant experience an affirmative one for young newcomers while instilling in them a sense of pride and support for American ideals of democracy and freedom. By doing so, Liberty's Promise seeks to reaffirm our fundamental egalitarian and democratic traditions for future generations.

Our shoutout this week goes to Ever Hernandez, a program participant from Northwood High School. Ever is one of few participants that comes to both our Northwood Civics and CE-BELL programs. He always shares his positive energy with his peers and is always one of the first participants in the room. Throughout the program, Ever always pays attention and offers to help the Program Officer and other students. He goes as far as staying after the program ends to help clean up and make sure the room looks just as it was found. After high school, Ever will pursue a career in education and hopes to become an ESOL teacher to support students the way he has been supported! We appreciate you, Ever. Thank you for being a part of our Liberty's Promise family. #wednesdayshoutouts
