Founded 2016

UrbanPromise Arkansas

 

UrbanPromise Arkansas was launched in May 2016 with a summer camp program for 1st-5th graders in the high-need neighborhood of Baring Cross in North Little Rock, AR. In May 2018, Camp Joy was created for 6th-8th graders. The vision of UrbanPromise Arkansas is to be a community in Christ of servant leadership and transformation, seeking a full life for all involved: urban youth, families, volunteers, and staff in the neighborhoods of our cities. Our mission is to equip youth with the skills necessary for academic achievement, life management, personal growth, and servant leadership.
