The mission for UP DR is to empower Dominican children and youth by instilling Christian principles of human dignity, promoting education to inspire new ideas that will motivate others to achieve excellence, and to embrace the diversity that make up the Dominican people.
We serve the children from the Fernando De La Cruz primary school district. Summer Camp activities engage and encourage children to develop diverse friendships. At Camp Agape we not only play games, sing songs, and do arts and crafts- we become family.
UrbanPromise AfterSchool Program helps elementary school aged children perform well academically, learn life skills, and grow in their Christian faith. The children get help with their homework and participate in interactive activities!
Youth Leadership Program
The Youth Leadership Program empowers local youth to become agents of change in their own community. As these high school aged youth are mentored and tutored they learn how to plan lessons, teach, and inspire children. They are the core of our ministry.
