UrbanPromise reaches younger children through afterschool and summer programs and raises high school leaders who are employed as mentors in these programs. Our ultimate goal is to restore community as a new generation of young leaders affects social, economic, and spiritual revitalization in their neighborhoods and the city of Charlotte.

The mission of UrbanPromise Charlotte is to provide Charlotte's children and youth with the spiritual, academic, and social development necessary to become Christian leaders determined to restore their communities.

UrbanPromise Charlotte - East started at Cokesbury United Methodist Church in September 2017, serving 60 student campers from Idlewild Elementary School.
