Mission & History

Our mission is to equip Trenton’s children and young adults with the skills necessary for:

  • Academic achievement
  • Life management
  • Spiritual growth
  • Christian leadership.

The vision to create an UrbanPromise ministry program in Trenton became a reality in 2011 when UPTrenton held its first Summer Camp on West State Street. Enthusiasm about the camp was so great that we opened our doors for a free AfterSchool program that same year. In 2012 we launched our second site in downtown Trenton. In the fall of 2014, we opened our third site in east Trenton in collaboration with Habitat for Humanity. We have continued to operate AfterSchool and Summer Camp programs in three locations.

With a five year history, our goal is to create and maintain at least one program site in each ward of Trenton. We are well on our way!
