A Night with Promise

THE PROMISE GALA

This semi-formal event will include live music, food (hors d’oeuvres), drinks, prizes, and both a silent and live auction to help raise funds for UrbanPromise Vancouver.

At UrbanPromise Vancouver, no young person is ever turned away due to an inability to pay for our programs and camps. We believe that every person ‘belongs’ and deserves opportunities to learn and grow. For this reason, all the money raised from this event will go directly to funding the cost of our operations and programs for the upcoming year so that we can make sure every young person we encounter has access to these opportunities.

We believe the funds we collect will help change the world for good as we invest in, care for, and equip the children, youth, and families who are living in some of the most impoverished areas of our city.

URBANPROMISE VANCOUVER

UrbanPromise Vancouver is a place where people from various backgrounds gather (including socio-economic, ethnic, cultural, generational, and occupational) to build positive relationships with the intent of providing children and young adults with opportunities to be equipped with the experience and skills necessary for academic achievement, life management, spiritual growth, and leadership. We strive to fulfill this mission through after-school programs, summer camps, experiential learning, job training, mentoring relationships, and a host of other programs that challenge youth to develop and realize their potential.

Our goal is to bring positive change to the world by caring for and restoring individuals, families, and communities, as a new generation of young leaders affects social, economic, and spiritual revitalization in their neighbourhoods, Metro Vancouver, and the world.

UrbanPromise Vancouver exists to transform Metro Vancouver for good through serving the children, youth, and families in our neighbourhoods with love and extending an invitation for all people to be part of this transforming journey.

Our promise is to provide and continuously build a community that harnesses positive growth for the youth of today, and rise together for a better tomorrow.
