Get to know our programs

Appalachian Connect Program

A workforce sustainability program designed to help workers grow our region’s businesses. We provide resource navigation using a sustainable workforce model. The idea is simple: when your workers thrive, your business grows. 

Buckle Up for Life

Buckle Up for Life began in Bristol in 2013 and provides car seats for those in need and safety checks for parents and caregivers. 

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Program

Appalachian Promise Alliance is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion both in our organization and in the larger community. In partnership with our community, we seek to support regional efforts to create a diverse and thriving community.

PACES & Resilience Program

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) are traumatic events that happen prior to age 18 that can have lifelong negative health outcomes. However, it’s never too late to build resilience through Positive experiences no matter your age.

Parenting Network

The Appalachian Promise Alliance Parenting Network coordinates access to existing parenting and caregiver education and supports, identifies and addresses gaps, advocates the benefits of parenting education, and helps educators complement and grow services. 

Poverty Education & Awareness

Through simulations and other educational programs, Appalachian Promise Alliance uses education and awareness about poverty and finances to set communities up for success.

The Youth Networking Alliance was the original initiative of Appalachian Promise Alliance in 2006. The group includes representatives from schools, nonprofits, agencies, health departments, the faith community and more and provides regular programming.
