iUrban Teen

STEM+Arts = The Future of Technology

Our Mission - To expose and inspire male youth of color to become tomorrow’s technology leaders.

iUrban Teen is a nationally recognized program focused on bringing STEM+Arts education to male youth of color ages 13 to 18. Through interactive summits, STEM industry tours and on-going specialized training’s, iUrban youth receive hands-on exposure to a variety of STEM+Arts careers to step outside their current boundaries..

OUR GOALS

  • Increase awareness and knowledge of STEM+Arts careers and training.
  • Provide mentoring and internship opportunities for our iUrban Teen youth in STEM+Arts industries.
  • Create a collaborative learning model for youth to continue to use in various surroundings.
  • Create a personal development plan in an interactive environment.

Our target demographics are African American, Latino and Native American males, however, the program is inclusive of all youth who fall within the Non-Traditional STEM learners category.  We have almost equal parity of girls that attend the summits.
