Urban City Youth interrupts the vicious cycle of the streets by providing alternatives for at risk youth to eradicate social inequalities.  With training in media broadcast production, we develop, evaluate and implement programs that enhance children’s social and intellectual development. Our programs are both rehabilitative and therapeutic. We nurture the youth’s capacity to think critically and skillfully. We strive to deepen their commitment to pro-social values, such as kindness, helpfulness, personal responsibility, and respect for others. Values we believe to be essential for them to achieve their fullest potential.
