Individual Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteering at UrbanPromise is an excellent opportunity to learn more about our programs, meet and form relationships with our youth, and help us reduce our budget by providing assistance where we need it most. Individual volunteer opportunities are available throughout the week—during the day and evening—and include tutoring teens in our job training program, assisting with administrative and clerical work in our development office, and serving as an aide in an elementary classroom.

Internships

UrbanPromise’s internship program provides college-aged adults with year-round or summertime training in urban youth development and ministry. Interns work in our after-school and summer camps and live in community in the Camden neighborhood in which they work. Their role at UrbanPromise is essential to our organization’s operational and programmatic success as they work on a volunteer basis and act as positive role models to the children and teens in their camps.

Ambassador of Hope Scholarship Fund

The Ambassadors of Hope Scholarship Fund provides financial assistance to UrbanPromise graduates who attend or are planning to attend an institution of higher education or trade school. In 2011, the year the fund was launched, more than $50,000 was raised to support 15 college students from Camden, NJ.

 Ambassadors of Hope was created by UrbanPromise graduate and board member, Arlene Wube, who now owns her own business and resides in Washington, DC with her husband. Arlene says she launched the fund “to provide current UrbanPromise youth with an opportunity to realize their potential through education and enrichment.” She hopes to inspire UrbanPromise alumni to attend and graduate from college and become successful in their own adult lives.
