Details: This summer, UrbanPromise is employing a record breaking 55 teens to work at their free summer camps throughout the city. StreetLeaders provide support to our staff and serve as role models to the children in their neighborhoods. The StreetLeader program is an opportunity for them to learn important job and leadership skills.

With the goal to raise $30,000! Please consider partnering with us and supporting their team as they paddle for teens! Go to http://www.urbanpromise.org/featured/save-the-date-paddle-for-promise.htm to meet the team and donate!
