Your tax-deductible 501c donation goes a long way. The children have learned about everything from cooking to Irish dancing, from bucket drumming to soccer, and so much more. The need is great, and our goal is to inspire more bright smiles by expanding our program in the coming years to cover all four wards of Trenton.

More About UrbanPromise Trenton’s SummerCamps

Within a safe and stimulating environment, the children enjoy days filled with educational and fun activities. The program provides opportunities for them to improve their academic performance, develop necessary life skills, create positive relationships with caring adults, explore the arts, and nurture their faith.

Joining together with area organizations such as NJ Tennis and Learning, Bucks AIR, and 4-H Youth Development, we are able to offer the children windows into a new world that can inspire and challenge them. From science and healthy living, to golf and tennis, to Bible study and faith, the children are exposed to an array of engaging activities. The campers have taken field trips to local farms, attended children’s theater, and cheered for the Trenton Thunder right in their own backyard.

Each summer UPTrenton teams up with Mercer Street Friends to provide healthy breakfasts and lunches to our SummerCamp children and teens – at no cost to them! This is a great partnership and we love collaborating with Mercer Street Friends!

Our SummerCamps are supported by local churches and businesses that volunteer to help with weekly programs. Our Site Directors, StreetLeaders and Interns take the lead, but local volunteers lend a hand in nurturing the children and sharing their own interests with them. The children have learned about everything from cooking to Irish dancing, from bucket drumming to soccer. We encourage you to share your passion with the children. We think you will agree that their smiling faces say it all. Our waiting list says even more. The need is great, and our goal is to inspire more bright smiles by expanding our program in the coming years to cover all four wards of Trenton.

Our Summer Reading Program will be back in 2021!

A census report conducted between 2011-2015, listed the high school graduation rate in the city of Trenton at 71%, which is one of the lowest high school graduation rates in the state of New Jersey.  The mission of the Summer Reading Program at UrbanPromise Trenton is to provide an alternative for students; we edit the existing narrative, offering a perspective outside the context of the U.S. Census Bureau.

The Summer Reading Program provides Trenton-area Junior High School, High School, and college-bound students with competent and supportive educators, safe and chaos-free learning environments, expeditionary and experiential learning opportunities, as well as the resources to be readily prepared for the college classroom and environment.

If you want to be part of this important initiative, check back to see which books we have chosen and consider purchasing a book(s) for the Summer Reading Program.

All participants will read their book within a creative and supportive learning environment because, as Maurice Sendak said: “There’s so much more to a book than reading!”.
