Programs & Events


Urban Impact supports all our students their academic endeavors, no matter the grade level.  Through various programs, both in and out of school, the Education team strives to provide children of all ages with the opportunity to succeed academically, which will compliment their Performing Arts' and Athletics' training.  Also, we believe that Urban Impact’s support of educational improvements in the local schools will help to connect our organization with more students and community members.


“One student, in particular, has shown vast improvements in his behavior and engagement in his lessons! He has become more focused, is answering questions, and even says “please” and “thank you”, which is unlike his behavior in the first few weeks of school.”
