WHAT WE DO
WHERE WE DO IT
HOW WE DO IT

We're committed to raising a generation of young leaders from Toronto Community Housing neighbourhoods.

 

We see them becoming young leaders who love Jesus and are determined to serve the next generation of children growing up in their own communities. These leaders will be extraordinary despite great hardship, because they know what it means to lead by serving. They will have a restoring influence in the city of Toronto, across Canada and around the world.

 We're in three Toronto Community Housing (TCHC) neighbourhoods 

These under-resourced communities often present challenges that no child should have to face. Challenges such as material poverty, broken homes and families, lack of extracurricular programs, educational support, safe spaces and spiritual awareness can result in destructive cycles.

About our communities

We're all about bringing hope to these communities and journeying with children, youth and their families to help them overcome the obstacles that poverty creates.

 REACH 

A CHILD

 

5 - 14 YEARS

 

Relationships are cultivated with children  through AfterSchool Program, seasonal camps, and experiential learning opportunities.

 

Camp is a safe place to come. Children get help with homework, eat healthy snacks, play games and hang out. Our goal is growth in spiritual awareness, academic achievement and respect for self and others.

 RESTORE  COMMUNITY

 

20 - 25 YEARS

 

As these youth become young adults, they are released to multiply the impact of UrbanPromise Toronto and become positive influencers & leaders in their communities.

Young adults stay connected though 2-way mentorship; we support their launch into the world, and encourage them to pour back into those coming up behind. Our goal is strong foundations in church connection, college and career path and community leadership.
