  • This topic is important to me because I’ve spent a lot of time helping Urban Ministries. I’ve seen the need for volunteers and would love nothing more than to help as best I can. This past year I went with a group of friends to Urban Promise, located in Wilmington DE. We spent a week Helping their youth organization. Two years ago, I traveled to Trinidad and Tobago to help out with several different groups that were in need. Trinidad is located seven miles off the coast of Venezuela.\n
  • These are some facts on the poverty in America, along with the rest of the world...\n\nOver 13 million American children live in poverty meaning they have little or no money and few or no material possessions...\n\nOver the past two decades families headed by woman have more than doubled. A large cause of this is due to the father of the family not being able to provide and thus leaving.\nRural is the coutryside.\nThe blue shows the population of families that make approximately $1.50 a day\n\n\n For a population of 5,000, 41% would be 2050 people in urban areas live under the poverty line\n
  • Urban Promise is one of the largest non-profit organizations that deals with Urban environments.\nThey originated in Camden NJ, back in 1988 by a man named Anthony Campolo. He recruited college students to work with the youth in Camden. They quickly grew and spread all across the United States. \n\n\n\n

  • Tony Campolo is the professor of sociology at Eastern University and a former faculty member at the University of Pennsylvania.  He is also the author of many books.\nExamples.... “You Can Make a Difference”, “Stories That Feed Your Soul”, “Adventures In Missing the Point”Tony is the founder of the Evangelical Association for the Promotion of Education (EAPE). EAPE has developed and nurtured elementary and secondary schools, universities, adult and child literacy centers, tutoring programs, orphanages, AIDS hospices, urban youth ministries, summer camps, and long-term Christian service programs in Haiti and the Dominican Republic, in various African countries, and across Canada and the United States.\n

  • a safe and loving environment, tutoring, transportation to and from programs, nutritious snacks, bible study, retreats, spring break trips, Thanksgiving family dinners, speech contests & spelling bees, mentors, Christmas presents, holiday care, And so much more!\n\n\n\n
  • Urban Promise has several programs to get people involved. (go through programs)\n
  • Each year high school and college students come from across the United States to spend time(spring break or any other chance that can be taken) helping Urban Promise in work projects and supporting outreach efforts to the youth of Camden. Workgroup guests also get involved in social and political issues facing poor urban communities. This is done in an effort to get rid of stereotypes and creating meaningful conversations between local people and program guests. They also encourage and welcome local churches and corporate teams to come and serve Urban Promise on Saturdays or any time throughout the year by creating teams of people who want to participate in acts of service-like facilities maintenance. “Urban Promise strongly relies on the efforts of volunteers to maintain its facilities.”\n
  • The Child Sponsorship Program encourages people who may not be able to help physically, get involved in other ways-such as Sponsoring. Each month, one would send money to a child to cover his or her needs. \n
  • You can sign up on the Urban Promise website\n Amount: 30$ per month(360$ per year)\nIt’s easy to sign up. Simply go on their website and follow the information provided. Through this, over 500 children are sponsored a year.\nYour support of $30/month ($360/year) will provide a child with the opportunity to attend a free neighborhood-based program.\nUrbanPromise is committed to providing every child who participates in the AfterSchool Program & Summer Camps with many things..\n
  • The Lenten Challenge is simple. Give up something that you would normally do or have for a day- be it 24 hours without eating, watching tv, using your phone or any technological device for that matter. Doing this shows us what it is to go without food or entertainment for a little while. Many people don’t have every day access to such things. It’s often hard to see how difficult it is for us to go without being entertained for just a short amount of time.\n
  • A 13, 22 or 50 mile bike ride between Medford and Tuckerton, NJ.  All money raised from this event will go towards helping support UrbanPromise Academy.Your involvement in Pedal for Promise will help support the education taking place at Urban Promise Academy(UPA)\n
  • UPA is a private high school focusing on the needs of young people who are not reaching their academic potential. Founded in 1997 by UrbanPromise Ministries, Urban Promise Academy (UPA) offers Camden teens a unique private schooling opportunity. Students often enter the school 2 to 3 grade levels below national age level standards.\n
  • The Partner Program is another way to help out struggling student. There are two places one can get involved with this. The Camden Forward School(K-8th graders) or the UPA(9-12th graders). One would simply partner up with a student and keep them accountable for their school progress or just to simply be there for someone to talk to. The length of your partnership is of your choice. Most typically see it though the end of the students high school journey.\n
  • This is one of Urban Promise’s fund raisers..\nYou will be joined by CBS sport’s anchor, Beasley Reece, for a day of golf, friendly competition, food, drinks and prizes.\nYour involvement in this day will make sure that hundreds of Camden’s children and teens will have the chance to participate in the day camps, job training, sports leagues, and performing arts this summer. This will help get the Camden kids off dangerous city streets and be involved in programs that foster academic and social growth.\n
  • Fun, educationally-based, age-appropriate activities are provided daily. These usually include art, recreation, life skill workshops, community awareness activities, breakfast and lunch. One morning out of each week is set aside for a special trip as a reward for good attendance and behavior. A lot of the children also participate in afternoon and evening activities including sports leagues, small group time with staff and Camp Night. Throughout the summer, the children also participate in numerous special events including a Kickball Tournament, a Capture-the-Flag Tournament, a Summer Carnival and All Camp Day.\n
  • The UrbanPromise Intern Program provides urban youth ministry training, combining theological education with hands-on ministry experience. They do their best to invite foreign people who are looking to serve. (ex:Canada, the United Kingdom, Africa, and Korea)\nInterns make a commitment of 2 - 24 months and play a key role in the ministry. ---Most interns decide to commit a summer of serving\nthey will have a week of innovative and motivating training to prepare them for relational ministry in the inner city. Their team will work together to lead summer camps; teaching classes, participating in crazy games and skits\n---some interns decide to commit to serving during the school year. This entails helping with the after school help and camps that go on. \n
  • \n
  • StreetLeaders are youth aged 14-18 years who is employed by UrbanPromise to work as a counselor, teacher and role model to children in our after school programs and summer camps. \nThis program offers.... Job training, Leadership development, Tutoring, Mentoring, Employment, College preparation\n
  • The Wish List is a way that you can donate items to certain programs of Urban Promise.. such as; Urban Promise General, Urban Promise Academy, Urban Promise Student Center, After school Programs, Summer camps, and Workgroups.\n\n--The summer camps need items from board games to craft supplies\n
  • The sunday breakfast mission began in 1878. It is simply an outreach center that supplies food and shelter for the homeless.\nIt supplies: Shelter, Long-term educational programs, Community meals(for over 200 men, woman, and children), and free clothing and furniture. They also have many activities such as; Lady’s Day, Eater baskets and Christmas Gifts, Thrift Store Ministry, Vehicle Donation and Resale.\n
  • Shelter: for more than 165 homeless men nightly.\nCommunity meals: for over 200 men, women, boys and girls nightly as well as food boxes for over 250 needy families monthly, breakfasts for homeless men, and lunch for program people.\nFree clothing and furniture: with counseling for needy families through our Community Outreach.\nBack-to-School Rally: for over 2000 boys, girls and parents providing encouragement, positive messages, and backpacks with school supplies annually.\nGreat Thanksgiving Food Outreach: providing over 1000 annually with large food boxes, turkeys, pies, rolls, and access to other services.\n\n

  • In February, I, spent the weekend with a group of people from a local church. Here we took on the lenten challenge and went 36 hours without eating. We did this for two reasons.. one: to get our minds focused on why we were there and not on ourselves, and two: to get a taste of what it’s like to go without eating for a decent amount of time- Something that some people from wilmington go through every day. Here, we stripped apart their kitchen and cleaned everything from pots and pans to ovens and freezers. We also cleaned most of the furniture in the kitchen. This included chairs, tables and floors.\n
  • Located in Wilmington DEOne of the five campsThe other camps are; Camp Freedom, Camp Victory, Camp Joy\n
