Starting a Chapter

Start a Chapter

Because I said I would Chapters empower the next generation to make and keep promises, strengthen their self-control and use it to better the world around them. We accomplish this through character education and volunteerism founded on service learning.


We are confident that character education with an emphasis on promise keeping and incorporating our Code of Honor will strengthen future generations. We believe there are students that are just one promise away from graduating, helping others, and being leaders in their communities.

Are you interested in bettering your school? How about the world around you? Then apply right now to begin the process of starting a because I said I would Chapter in your High School.
