Who We Are

iUrban Teen is a nationally recognized program that provides career-focused education to historically minoritized teens ages 12-18. Youth receive hands-on exposure and training in a variety of careers, community service, and civic engagement that challenge their current boundaries. Our target demographics are African American, Indigenous, Latine, and Pacific Islander students. iUrban Teen has programs in Washington, Oregon, California, and Texas.

I created iUrban Teen in October 2011 because I saw the need for equitable education systems for youth who have historically been excluded or discouraged to pursue STEM careers.
