thank you for your generous support of our work!
Urban Excellence is a project of Urban Philanthropies, Inc., a 501c3 nonprofit organization. Your generous contributions are tax deductible and makes a positive difference in the following three areas:
Thrive Academy for Transitional-Age Foster Youth
Foster youth between the ages of 15 and 21 are particularly vulnerable, as they transition into adulthood and age out of the foster care system. Typically, they have few supportive adults in their lives and limited access to college and career options. Despite these barriers, they are resilient and with mentoring and support they can make the transition and find their path to success. Join us in providing mentorship, education, information, resources, and support in going from merely "surviving" to THRIVING as productive and empowered citizens in our community.
Character Education and Mentoring
Character education is a learning process that enables students and adults in a school community to understand, care about and act on core ethical values such as respect, justice, civic virtue and citizenship, and responsibility for self and others. Urban Excellence partners with local Middle and High Schools in low socio-economic communities in proving age-appropriate character education and mentoring.
At Urban Excellence, we are committed to bringing top quality personal growth and development programs o those who are committed to improving their own lives, the difference they make in their own communities -- yet, may not have the financial means to do so. Our tuition assistance funds match funds to the greatest need.
