The mission of UrbanTrekkers is to be an outdoor, hands-on, up-close learning and mentoring program, where the world is our classroom.
Our Goals are to:
- Instill a love and respect for all creation and better understand our role as the Earth’s stewards.
- Expose UrbanPromise youth to the natural world by way of outdoor adventures.
- Provide a setting in which young people and caring adults can connect to share experiences that will change how we see the world today, and our place in it tomorrow.
- Build self-esteem and improve self-worth in the lives of students and help them acquire the skills they’ll need to be successful.
Trips are planned around five key elements – outdoor adventures, cross-cultural experiences, community service, environmental awareness, and historical perspectives. Leadership training and teaming building activities are incorporated into all events.
UrbanPromise Wilmington Mountain Bike Team
The UrbanPromise Wilmington Trailblazers mountain bike team participates with National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA) during the fall sports season. Our student-athletes are UPW youth in 6th-12th grade.
We strive to equip our student-athletes with, not only biking and racing competence, but also the skills necessary for academic achievement, life management, personal growth, and servant leadership.
