Here’s a testimony from an 11 grader that was recently posted on the Urban Promise website

A Year of Opportunity by Yormeliz, Urban Promise Academy 11th grader…

I started coming to Urban Promise just 1 year ago, and in that year…

  • I’ve done community service And helped organize a canned food drive.
  • I’ve worked with teens from other schools on projects.
  • I’ve been hiking. I slept in a tent. I made my own food. I rode a bike for 250 miles.
  • I helped plant a garden. I built a boat.
  • I’ve been to Washington, DC. To Massachusetts, To New Hampshire. I’ve been to Colorado, And Utah. I’ve visited 5 different National Parks. I visited the White House, and the Smithsonian.
  • I canoed on the Cooper, I raced a Dragon Boat on the Schuylkill and did a 4-day paddle on the Delaware River.
  • I caught lobsters in Maine.
  • I’ve been a part of Students in Action And Outdoor Leadership Training, and now I’m running for Student Council.
  • I spoke English for the first time in front of a group of people.
  • And now I’m standing here in front of you.
  • Just over a year ago, I was living in Puerto Rico. I had done none of these things. But when an experience comes up and I catch it in my eyes, and it stays in my eyes—I have to do it.
  • I believe I must take every opportunity that is offered to me. It just turns out that at UrbanPromise, there are LOTS of opportunities.

Support Urban Promise with your prayers and gifts.  Provide more opportunities for kids like Yormeliz.
