WHAT WE DO

We're on a 20 year journey with a child and their family...


CHILDREN LIVING IN TORONTO COMMUNITY HOUSING (TCH) NEIGHBOURHOODS WANT WHAT ANY KID WANTS...

TO BE ACCEPTED

 

TO BE VALUED

 

TO BE LIKE THEIR ROLE MODELS

 

TO DREAM...

But they're up against some tough realities that can make them lose hope...

  • material poverty
  • lack of resources & opportunities
  • destructive cycles
  • broken homes & families
  • threat of violence & drugs

BUT EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE HOPE!

 

And everyone should have the opportunity to meet Jesus, the author of hope itself!

We are commited to giving HOPE through our Leadership Pathway...

Reach A Child

Relationships are cultiavated with children age 5-14 through After School Program, seasonal camps, and experiencial learning opportunities

Raise A Leader

High school aged youth who were once participants of our programs are now coached in leadership by focusing on academic, social and spiritual growth.

Restore Community

As these youth become young adults, they are released to multiply the impact of UrbanPromise Toronto and become positive influencers & leaders in their communities.

Church Partnership and Community Engagement

It is critical that we partner and engage alongside local churches, community stakeholders, and providers to incorporate families into the body of Christ, share resources, and engage in a more collaborative approach.


WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE...

AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM & SEASONAL CAMPS

Camp is a safe place to come. Children get help with homework, eat healthy snacks, play games and hang out. Our goal is growth in spiritual awareness, academic achievement and respect for self and others.

LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

High school aged youth are hired to work at camp as StreetLeaders.  StreetLeaders are trained to lead, coached to serve and required to try their best. We also help youth build resumes, apply for school and navigate their teenaged years. Our goal is discipleship and holistic maturity.

MULTIPLYING IMPACT

Young adults stay connected though 2-way mentorship; we support their launch into the world, and encourage them to pour back into those coming up behind. Our goal is strong foundations in church connection, college and career path and community leadership.
