Urban Dove

Urban Dove works in communities in New York City where the number of youth facing challenges is disproportionately high. Its programs are designed to help youth overcome these challenges by identifying their causes and creating interventions that address them. Urban Dove uses a combination of academics, life skills, job skills and sports to engage, energize and educate youth, helping them to achieve the critical outcomes of high school graduation, college enrollment and college graduation. To date, 98% of Urban Dove teenagers have graduated high school, over 95% have gone to college and over 90% have either graduated or remain in college.
