About this ministry

Since 2010, UrbanPromise Miami has been building the Path to Promise for the children and youth of Little Havana. Our mission is to equip children and youth of Miami with the skills necessary for academic achievement, life management, spiritual growth, and leadership. We fulfill this mission through AfterSchool Programs, Summer Camps, experiential learning, job training, and a host of other programs that challenge youth to develop and realize their potential.

UrbanPromise Miami encourages youth ages 14 to 18 to become role models to younger children participating in the programs, providing an opportunity for youth to stay connected with UrbanPromise Miami while developing important life and leadership skills and remaining involved in their community.
