Programs

The Programs of UrbanPromise are structured to build life-changing relationships.  Sharing life in Christ transforms a large diverse, and growing corps of volunteers, organziations, businesses, schools, neighbors, and families.  Our programs address:

Promise Lost:

At birth, all children have great promise.  For a majority of urban youth, their potential goes unrealized.  This majority follow a much more negative path than their suburban peers.  They are incarcerated at much higher rates.  They seriously underperform on state tests and more than half fail to achieve a full high school education.  In our neighborhoods less than 10% enter college and fewer still complete it.

Promise Found:

To change the reality, children need a new vision and the tools to achieve it.  Through sustained, loving relationships, UrbanPromise helps rebuild the future of these kids with life-changing impact.
