We teach youth of color to advocate for themselves and their communities, by providing a culturally relevant curriculum and academic support through a social justice lens.
The Urban Scholars program aims to support youth of color in increasing academic achievement, graduating from high school and transitioning to college. Urban Scholars participants receive the tools and resources to build knowledge of self for personal transformation, develop critical consciousness and achieve academic success.
RESOURCES PROVIDED TO SCHOOLS
If you operate a school committed to improving educational outcomes for young men of color, we want to work with you.
SJLI programming is typically offered during the school day as an elective period, or as an extra-curricular offering. All participating school sites will receive a designated school site coordinator to work directly with your selected instructors.
