Our Mission: "Transforming young lives by building bridges that lead to a stronger future"
Urban Bridges is an image enhancement, etiquette & personal development life skills academy
Urban Bridges vision is to build confidence and self-esteem in children, teens and young adults (ages 7 years old to 19 years old), to build dreams into reality and to equip and empower young people with the necessary personal, social & professional life skills they will need to become positive influential role-models.
Thru the UBI youth organization, young people will become equipped with the facts that they are somebody, no matter what has happened to them or what they are going through. Youth will learn valuable, sustaining life skills.
Other skills taught but not limited to are:
Interpersonal relationship skills
