This is our calling. Our village incubates dreams and future leaders. We don't stop at a nurturing environment, we intentionally carve out and engage opportunities that tactically allow our youth to grow and thrive beyond our village.
We help launch our community in three programatic offerings:
1."Fight For Something" College Scholarship
2. Urban Village KLUB
3. Fiscal sponsorship and program incubation

Urban Village Scholars
We are proud to offer after school homework help and mentorship on Tuesday's and Thursday's from 6-8PM.
Per our Village scholarship requirements, our Urban Village Scholars are required to serve as mentors and homework helpers in our bi weekly after school scholars program. This provides culturally relevant school support and mentorship to our middle school and high school students.
The Urban Village is proud to offer fiscal sponsorship to emerging organizations within the Karen and Karenni communities. We provide seed money, oversight, administrative support, and growth training to groups whose mission aligns with our own.
We don't just launch youth, we empower others to do the same.
