Our Mission – To expose and inspire underrepresented youth to become tomorrow’s business and technology leaders.

iUrban Teen is a nationally recognized program focused on bringing career focused education to underrepresented teens ages 13 to 18. Youth receive hands-on exposure to a variety of careers and civic engagement that step them outside of their current boundaries. Our target demographics are African American, Latino and Native American males, however, the program is inclusive of all youth.  We have almost equal parity of girls that participate in our programs and also youth with special needs.  iUrban Teen programs are now in Washington, Oregon, California, Texas and launching in New York in the Fall of June 2016.

OUR GOALS – Creating the Spark:

  • Increase awareness and knowledge of STEM+C+A, Civic and Communication careers and training.
  • Build confidence and critical thinking skills
  • Provide mentoring and internship opportunities.
  • Create a collaborative learning model for youth to continue to use in various surroundings.

Create a personal development plan in an interactive environment
