Urban Youth Impact is on a mission to love, equip and empower inner-city youth to fulfill their God-given purpose. Inner-city youth living in the most at-risk neighborhoods in Palm Beach County face poverty, a lack of school readiness, low graduation rates, high teen birth rates and violence. For more than 23 years, the ministry of Urban Youth Impact (UYI), along with its funding partnerships, has been helping reverse these troubling trends, primarily through its After-school programs and Outreach sites around the county. In partnership with local individuals, churches, foundations, businesses and other nonprofits, UYI’s award-winning signature programs and strategies serve more than 300 urban youth each week. They are loved, which builds trusting relationships, equipped academically in literacy to succeed in school, empowered with leadership principles to be successful in the marketplace, exposed to arts and sciences to discover new possibilities, and given spiritual enrichment

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.
