Mission Statement

We seek to create safe spaces throughout Latin America, where children and youth are given the tools necessary for life management, academic excellence, spiritual growth, and Christian leadership. Our ministry model includes afterschool programs, vacation camps, youth employment programs, experiential learning, and alternative schools.

Description

As a community of people inspired and guided by Jesus, we exist to reduce poverty in under-resourced communities by unlocking the inherent potential of children and teens.

We facilitate the creation of innovative, sustainable, Christian, youth-serving institutions in under-resourced communities.

The UrbanPromise School of Entrepreneurial Leadership (UPSEL) was founded to offer global visionaries an opportunity for increased training and access to resources that would help address the most pressing needs impacting vulnerable youth. We have established a branch of UPSEL at our UPLAM site in Copán Ruinas, Honduras, designed specifically for leaders around Latin America. During their time in Copán Ruinas, leaders receive in-depth instruction in non-profit organizational leadership and practical training experience from UPH personnel. In the final stage of the 12-month program, leaders have the opportunity to develop project proposals and request seed capital to fund start-up affiliates in their communities abroad or to expand existing programs. The UrbanPromise Latin America fellowship program includes significant cross-cultural experiences, providing an opportunity to foster collaboration towards a common vision among a more global audience.
