Our Programs

Teen Tech Clubs

Serving 160 Teenagers 
annually since 2017

YouthPromise Centre (YPC) has partnered with area schools, both primary and secondary, to create Teen Tech Clubs (TTCs). The clubs have been developed to engage and equip underserved and vulnerable school-going pupils and students who are interested in digital literacy and technology.


The teenagers enjoy benefits such as learning computers, participating in experiential learning tours, mentorship, and sponsorship among others.

Mentorship and Life Skills Training

Serving 58 Teenagers 
annually since 2017


​In life skills, we look at the psycho-social abilities that an individual has to adapt to so as to be able to live day-to-day life or to be able to survive in life.


This program gives young people an opportunity to know who they are and identify the talents lying within them. They assess the various leadership models demonstrated in society and they get to propose possible alternatives to failed leadership.


Our Vision is to impact the young generation with technology and the word of truth. We engage our teens in Bible Study so that they are able to get a better understanding of God and His plans for their lives.

Holiday Camp Programs

Serving 501  
annually since 2017

Holiday camp program when schools close in April, August, and December. Students earn digital skills, life skills, entrepreneurship, discipleship, and leadership.

Elderly Digital Literacy Program

Serving 21  
annually since 2017
We realized that it was not only the young and vulnerable that lacked the digital skills but also the elderly people in our community were hungry for these skills. A number of elderly people visit the site on Saturday morning hours for fellowship and training.

Girls Empowerment Program

Serving 58 Teen Girls 
annually since 2017
At YouthPromise Centre, we believe that each young lady has been made in the image of God and deserves to grow up to fulfill their God-given potential. Our Girls Care Program, with a holistic approach, addresses the feminine, educational, and spiritual needs of the young ladies who attend.   In 2024 Girls' Raising Hands will launch. This new program will bring additional training opportunities and educational support for the girls in the program. Join our Girls' Raising Hands Program Facebook Group.

Sponsorship Program

$36 / MONTH
Sponsorship Program Details
When you sponsor a child or youth through UrbanPromise International, you change a child’s life forever! With your support, our ministries are able to reach the children and youth in their communities through holistic programs. Children and youth have the opportunity to grow spiritually, socially, academically, and physically. Our ministries act as family for these children and youth, many of whom are coming from lifestyles of extreme poverty, broken homes, abuse, and circumstances that hold them back from their God-given potential.

When you sponsor a child or youth with UrbanPromise International, you become a part of their extended family around the world. Helping them break free from the chains of their circumstances, and giving them the opportunity to hope for a brighter future.
