Urban Youth Impact



Founded in 1997, Urban Youth Impact is the only faith-based organization serving the most at-risk inner-city youth in Palm Beach County, primarily through an award-winning after-school program. Children are loved through trusting relationships, equipped with academics to succeed in school, empowered with leadership skills to begin successful careers, their potential is expanded by discovering artistic and creative talents, and they are guided to discover their purpose in life.

2023-2024 United Way Funded Programs

Reframe is a job training program for high school youth. Youth learn from professionals through workshops, prepare college applications and resumes, get homework help, and interview for summer internships. UYI pays the youth, and the business they intern for trains them as they intern. 


The Leadership Academy enrolls 96 inner-city elementary age youth after school to provide homework help, literacy intervention and education classes. The goal is for 65% of youth to read on grade level or to improve one grade level.
