Opportunities to serve
Give 25 hours of service! Volunteer in our programs, bring a WorkGroup to one of our special 25th Anniversary Service Days, or host a fundraising event at your home or place of work.
Volunteering at UrbanPromise is an excellent opportunity to learn more about our programs, meet and form relationships with our youth, and help us reduce our budget by providing assistance where we need it most.
Individual volunteer opportunities are available throughout the week—during the day and evening—and include tutoring teens in our job training program, assisting with administrative and clerical work in our development office, and serving as an aide in an elementary classroom. Read on for more specific volunteer needs at UrbanPromise.
Weekend & Weekday WorkGroups
UrbanPromise WorkGroups provide unique community service and team-building opportunities to groups of between 10-40 individuals. We welcome teams of all kinds-from churches, youth groups, corporations, high schools, colleges, etc.-to spend a weekend or entire week engaging in service projects and/or assisting with our after-school and summer camps.
Groups interested in one-day WorkGroup experiences are welcome on Saturdays and weekdays throughout the year. Saturday workdays typically last between four to six hours; weekday workdays are usually two to four hours long. As our organization relies heavily on the efforts of volunteers to maintain our facilities, one-day work projects usually include indoor and outdoor maintenance, yard work, cleaning, painting, and light construction.
Join us for a special UrbanPromise's 25th anniversary WorkGroup day on May 25 and June 22.4
