Urban Initiatives

Urban Initiatives engages youth through team sports and play to build relationships that last through high school and beyond. Their structured, incentive-based programs provide opportunities for kids to grow and learn specifically in academics, health, social-emotional learning and youth leadership. They start with elementary students and serve the needs of the whole child from elementary school to high school and beyond through play. UI has used their play-based social-emotional learning programming to enhance youth’s resilience and connection and foster sustainable, collective healing in the wake of the pandemic.
