From Walltown to Black Wall Street

For the last 13 years, Urban Hope has been raising up generations of young heroes from Walltown to Black Wall Street through entrepreneurship and financial literacy initiatives in our annual summer camp. Located in the Walltown neighborhood of Durham, NC, the camp serves 30-40 youth and runs for 6 weeks (M-F, 8am-4pm, same kids all summer). It is a safe place where kids develop a positive identity and good friendships, gain valuable knowledge and skills, and learn how to contribute to their community.

Watch former campers reflect on the impact of their experience in the video below and consider making a donation towards the $20,000 we need to raise for the 2017 Urban Hope Summer Camp. A gift of $253 covers one week of camp for one youth. A gift of $1,518 covers the entire six weeks. Visit and give today!
