children of promise
A documentary that follows three former youth served by the Robert F. Kennedy Children's Action Corps on their courageous journeys from despair to inspiration. View 10 minute clip here (YouTube).
We were honored that the work of the agency was featured in a documentary, Children of Promise: The Legacy of Robert F. Kennedy on the Investigation Discovery Network. The documentary featured archival footage and new interviews with Kennedy family members including RFK’s daughters Kerry Kennedy and Kathleen Kennedy Townsend. These rare interviews connect the life and work of RFK to the powerful stories of the young people whose lives have been turned around through the work of the Robert F. Kennedy Children’s Action Corps.
Only a fraction of at-risk children end up at a place like RFK Children’s Action Corps, where staff treat both youth who have committed offenses, as well as children who come from dangerous and unstable homes. Staff at RFK Children’s Action Corps work to identify the basis of a child’s problem, and tailor the program to help each child individually.
