UPA Extracurricular Activities

UrbanPromise Academy seeks a full life for all involved. To us, that means providing students with a multitude of after school opportunities. 

Dance Team
Our dance team, the Flames, seeks to provide a welcoming atmosphere for students to engage in various dance styles. 

At UrbanPromise Academy, we recognize that sports are a powerful tool to help students learn life skills such as teamwork, dedication, perseverance, and communication skills. Sports provide a community in which to hone their skills as athletes. We offer flag football, basketball, and track.

Job Opportunities
UrbanPromise Academy is committed to training up the next generation of leaders. One way we are able to do this is partnering with the StreetLeader Job Program, which is a part of the larger UrbanPromise organization. The StreetLeader Job Program is the largest year-round employer of teens in Wilmington. Students ages 14-18 are given the opportunity to work in our after school elementary or middle school camps as well as our summer camp program. If you have any questions, please contact our StreetLeader program director.

The mission of UrbanTrekkers is to be an outdoor and experiential learning and mentoring program – the world becomes our classroom. Leadership training and team building are incorporated into all events. Trips are designed around five key elements:

  1. Outdoor Adventures
  2. Cross-Cultural Experiences
  3. Community Service
  4. Environmental Awareness
  5. Historical Perspectives
