Letter from Deena Pierott

Hello iUrban Teen family

We hope your summer is off to a great start. 2020 tested us beyond measure. After a challenging year, we hope you had time to celebrate a happy, safe, and spectacular Fourth of July with your family, friends, fireworks, and BBQ. iUrban Teen team celebrates you and your family and all you have achieved this year.

We have our own good news to share. Tabor 100 welcomes us at their Tabor Economic Development Hub. We are excited to open up a suite of offices in Tukwila, WA. After ten years of our commitment to the community, it is a pleasure to work alongside other ethnically diverse and Black-owned businesses at our new office at Tabor 100.

Summer can be a great time to engage in outdoor activities and online learning. We have a great lineup of exciting excursions and courses. We have a wide array of online courses, from iGame to iTutor. Brush up your math, chess, and language skills and learn coding, design, writing, and public speaking while having fun with the iUrban Teen community by joining our free iUT Online courses.

iUrban Teen is starting a new initiative, iEngineer, which kicks off this summer with a 2.5-day iEngineering Camp in Seattle and Portland led by professionals from Puget Sound Energy, Degenkolb, HNTB, Snohomish County PUD, Bonneville Power Administration, Glumac, and Cascade Energy. iEngineer is our new initiative to intentionally engage Black students in engineering careers.

As we are gearing up for in-person activities after a year-long break, we have various programs lined up with industry tours as well. Do not miss out on an opportunity on a productive summer with iUrban Teen. To register for our online courses, please visit iUrban Teen Online, and to learn more about our programs, visit iUrban Teen.

Fundraising is a constant with iUrban Teen as we commit to giving free courses to young students across the country. As a part of the Give More 24 campaign, you can join our community of amazing supporters on September 23 and make a difference by helping iUrban Teen bridge the gap in education, economic development, and community impact.

September 23, 2021, it is- mark your calendar and spread the word.
