Our Mission


Urban Dove's mission is to provide young people, regardless of their economic or social background, the critical skills needed to develop into strong, successful adults who are economically, socially, and emotionally independent. Our three pillars for achieving our mission are practiced all day, every day:


Urban Dove energizes at-risk students through a sports, nutrition, and fitness program that focuses on developing teamwork, healthy competition, and self-confidence for academic and life success.


Urban Dove educates over-aged, under-credited students through a 3-year project-based, personalized instructional program that leads to a high-school diploma, a foundation for higher education, and the job skills needed to enter the world of work.


Urban Dove empowers disconnected youth by providing leadership opportunities, internships, and support so they can build confidence and self-esteem.
