The Kinston Youth Enrichment Project is a program of Young Women of Promise, which was founded in 2001 by Kinston native Theresa Williams. Camp Promise is designed to provide academic enrichment for our students during the summer when opportunities for academic stimulation are limited.
We are currently accepting contributions for Camp Promise 2013. To nominate a youth for Camp Promise or to volunteer to work with our campers, please contact Kristal Suggs at 252/468-3007 or Theresa Williams at 252/522-8019.
