About: Urban Hope is a community-based youth ministry with the mission to raise up generations of young heroes—who are beating the odds—through creating safe places in the neighborhood to grow together. This is achieved through a combination of summer and academic-year activities.
2016-17 DGIN funding helped fund a program coordinator position that was responsible for executing project goals and coaching and mentoring youth. Doing Good in the Neighborhood also helped fund leadership labs, where youth learned how to cook nutritious meals, training and development, leadership retreats, college tours, and transportation.
