Becoming a mentor at UrbanPromise offers you an opportunity to experience the unexplainable joy of caring for a young person’s well-being and future. A mentoring relationship is a meaningful and long-term relationship between caring adults and youth – a relationship that gives youth the stability and unconditional love that they may lack at home or in their community.

Through our Mentorship Program, mentors will be paired with one of our high school StreetLeaders who has similar career and life ambitions. UrbanPromise provides mentors the structure and guidance necessary to establish and carry out a caring relationship with a child through monthly mentor trainings and ongoing communication with program staff. Mentors are encouraged to be part of the UrbanPromise family and participate with their mentee in UrbanPromise activities, as well as outside activities.

If you are willing to say, “Yes, I will make a long-term commitment to an UrbanPromise teen,” please contact Jimmy, our executive director, for more information at jimmy@urbanpromisecharlotte.org.
