UrbanPromise Charlotte, since its inception in 2013, has worked to develop Charlotte’s children and youth into Christian leaders determined to restore their communities. Our vision is three-fold: Reach a Child, Raise a Leader, Restore Community.
UrbanPromise Charlotte reaches younger children through our AfterSchool Programs and Summer Camps and raises high school leaders who are employed as mentors and counselors in these programs.
