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:
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.
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.
