Urban Youth Impact exists to love, equip and empower inner-city youth and their parents to fulfill their God-given purpose. Founded in 1997, UYI serves the inner city of West Palm Beach. 32% of youth living in the community are not expected to graduate from high school and two-thirds live below the poverty level. UYI seeks to reverse troubling trends and fulfill its mission by offering programs designed to develop critical life-skills that result in better life choices.
Urban Youth Impact's ReFrame Program gives students the opportunity to acquire real work experience in professional settings through paid internships. Since the start of this program in 2000, over 200 six-week internships opportunities have been provided. In 2012, UYI launched its year-round Work Program for in-school and out-of-school youth ages 15 to 24.
The primary goal of The Leadership Academy (TLA) is to prepare the students it serves to succeed in life by providing academic assistance, character development and spiritual enrichment through the students’ formative years. TLA serves up to 170 students in grades K-9 daily during the school year through tutoring, computer-based literacy learning, faith-based instruction, life-skills and character building lessons, mentoring relationships, performing arts, field trips, and recreation.
