Individual Opportunities to Volunteer

Providing pathways for people to serve and neighbors to meet is a passion for UrbanPromise.  We connect your time and talent to Wilmington’s under-resourced communities.  The result:  mutual transformation, a sense of purpose, and children who are helped.

From construction to computers, for cooking to mentoring, UrbanPromise pathways are almost endless.  UP will take a volunteer’s availability and their interests and talents and find a unique opportunity for each person.
