Urban Youth Initiative has been at the forefront of making a difference in children’s lives since 2014. Located at the intersection of community and life, the Urban Youth Initiative is happy to have played a critical part in the life-affirming journey that builds on the richness and power of lifelong values of our volunteers, support staff, educators, and administrators. We have been providing young people the values and skills they need to become exceptional community leaders and we are looking forward to the next part of the journey -- being able to support our members/students in earning their High School Equivalence credentials. The UYI Schools of Promise will be a network of New York State accredited learning academies designed to offer instruction in the Bronx, with a focus on the social-emotional support.

Currently, our primary educational goal is to provide Partner-Schools with qualified special educators. Click on the link below to find out more:
