Last month, the very first class of senior StreetLeaders from UrbanPromise Charlotte completed their high school careers.

We are thrilled to share that 100% of our 11 senior StreetLeaders graduated high school and will attend college this fall! This is particularly meaningful because most of our StreetLeaders will be the first in their families to attend college.

We celebrated our seniors’ accomplishments with our first Senior Signing Day–please take a few minutes to watch the highlights from this special night in this video.

As you watch, I hope you share in the feelings of joy, pride, and hope that defined that night, for it was your prayers, financial gifts, and encouragement that helped make our seniors’ achievements possible.

Thank you, as always, for continuing to believe in our students at UrbanPromise. I look forward to sharing with you how our StreetLeaders continue their leadership in college and beyond.

Grace and peace,
