Children’s laughter, moving buses, bouncing basketballs, flying water balloons, raucous singing, dramatic Bible teachings….all beautiful sounds for those who love summer youth ministry.
This summer felt somewhat “normal” for UrbanPromise—with in-person summer camps, jobs for teens, swim trips, canoeing on the Cooper River and overnight camping. Youth were grateful. Parents were elated to have their children out of the house.
UrbanPromise schools also re-opened after Labor Day to in-person learning. Our team is vigilant about the ever-changing dynamics of this pandemic. Please continue to pray for our students and teachers. More than ever, our students NEED an UNINTERRUPTED school year.
As of September our After School programs, StreetLeader teen employment programs, Boat Building, Wellness and Trekker programs are all underway in their critical work—engaging our young people outside of the traditional classroom.
We thank you for sharing your generous spirit with us so UrbanPromise can continue to do the work we are so passionate about. We hope to see you this coming year. More than ever, we need to unite around our children.
Thank you for your generosity!
