AFTERSCHOOL PROGRAM UPDATE (9/23/20)
As it has been said, over and over, these are strange times. The world is in a unique place, every single one of us has never done a global pandemic before. For all of us at UrbanPromise our goal has always been to provide opportunities for young people to learn, grow and have new experiences in a safe and caring environment. Those goals have not changed, but for all of us, our circumstances have.
We want to help, we want to be a resource and support as we all try to survive and thrive this next year. We want to hear from you about what you need and how we can best serve your family.
Our after school programs are going to look a little different. They must if we are to keep everyone as safe and well cared for as possible. We will spend more time on physical and creative activities, offer online clubs to expand young people's skills and experiences even when we are unable to meet in person.
We will be out in the neighborhoods over the next week and a half. You will be able to talk with our program directors and register children on the spot.

Some things will not change. Our commitment, especially our directors, to children's well being will not waiver. Our faith in what your young people are capable of is strong. Our belief in who they can be and how they can impact our community and world for the better is the foundation of everything we do.
Please reach out with any questions or concerns and know that our goal is to be the most helpful while keeping everyone safe.
