Youth Program


The Youth Program is our way of empowering local teenagers to positively influence the children at our Vacation Camps and AfterSchool Programs, and challenging them to be an example in their communities.

In the program, youth from 9th through to 12th grade work part-time in our after-school camps and learn the responsibility involved in taking care of and teaching others. Through their work in camp, along with weekly youth nights, teambuilding events with the other youth, and mid-year and end-of-year retreats, these teenagers grow to be the visionary leaders UrbanPromise Honduras strives to develop.

My managers are always giving me books about leadership to read, and I come here and there are 12-, 13-, 14-year-olds doing what’s in these books. I’m sure they haven’t read them, but there’s an impressive level of excellence in their work. I could take the youth team from camp and get them to do something corporate, and they would be the next Google.
