|The heart of UrbanPromise Trenton is our AfterSchool Programs. We believe that every child has a seed of greatness, and by providing a child with a safe and supportive environment that seed can grow and thrive. Instead of succumbing to gangs and crime, these children can become responsible young adults who make meaningful contributions to their families, peers and community.
Over one hundred children belong to the UrbanPromise Trenton family. During the academic year, these children enjoy a safe and nurturing environment where they form positive relationships with StreetLeaders and caring adults. Supported by generous donors, our committed staff and volunteers are empowered to offer tutoring and homework help, as well as enriching activities like music, art, dance, Bible study and life skills classes. This allows the children of UrbanPromise Trenton to shine their light and to be promise in their community.
We currently offer AfterSchool programs at two locations. CampTruth was our first site at Trinity Cathedral on West State Street, and our second location is CampPromise at Turning Point Methodist Church in the downtown area. Our goal is to open a site in all five wards of Trenton. And we are making strides towards that goal. Please check back soon for news regarding a third site in the works.
