...our mission at UrbanPromise has been to equip Camden's children and young adults with the skills necessary for academic achievement, life management, spiritual growth, and Christian leadership. We strive to fulfill this mission through after-school programs, summer camps, two schools, experiential learning, job training, and a host of other programs that challenge youth to develop and realize their potential.
Charles Tillman, the Chicago Bear’s extraordinary cornerback, received the Walter Payton Man of Year Award tonight—a highly prestigious award that recognizes an NFL player for the charitable and community work he does off the field. This national recognition was especially meaningful for the UrbanPromise community.
