Meet our Board of Trustees

UrbanPromise Trenton has a hardworking dedicated Board of Trustees whose diverse members represent all walks of life. The primary responsibility of any non-profit board is to safeguard the fiscal health of the organization. The Board functions as a key representative in our community, in fact, we call our members Community Ambassadors! UPT has been blessed with amazing community members who are deeply passionate about our mission- their enthusiasm keeps all of us fired up to serve the kids and teens in our programs. They share valuable feedback with staff regarding organizational issues. Our Board of Trustees is a vital part of fundraising strategies, too!

We are actively seeking folks to serve on our board as CommunityAmbassadors for UPT!  If you are not sure what is required of Board Ambassadors, please read our Board Expectations which explain the basics of serving on our Board of Trustees. If you are interested, please email Melissa, our Executive Director.
