America’s Promise Alliance and Juarez

Saturday, July 18

Earlier in the year, the Center for Promise and America’s Promise Alliance out of Boston University conducted research across the country on social, emotional, and cognitive learning. The Center for Promise reached out to Juarez because of our Competency-based education system. They visited our school and spent time speaking with our students about how learning happens at Juarez. 

America’s Promise Alliance just released their report, All of Who I Am. We are excited to be featured in the new report, which documents the features of learning environments like ours that intentionally integrate social, emotional and cognitive development. The new research highlights our work with students and underscores the importance of: 

  • Listening to young people

  • Creating cultures that support student belonging

  • Building adult capacity to share power with youth


Please see the full report and accompanying guide and check out the videos highlighting our students.
