Urban Dove uses the core values of Teamwork, Leadership and Communication to help New York City youth develop the critical life, job and academic skills they need to graduate high school, succeed in college and build careers. We are building a network of unique high schools to engage students who have fallen off-track and need a new start. Serving over 500 high school students each year, we will grow to serve over 1,500 students in the next five years.
Urban Dove energizes, educates, and empowers young people through our network of UD Team Charter Schools serving over-age/under-credited high school students. UD Team's innovative model uses sports, teams, restorative practices and mentoring to create a culture of high expectations and shared responsibility. By instilling our core values of Teamwork, Leadership and Communication, we develop our students into confident young adults ready to reach their full potential.
Urban Dove envisions a world where all children receive the high-quality education and support they need and deserve. Through education, they will acquire the critical skills needed to develop into economically, socially, and emotionally independent adults who are empowered to create a more just and equitable society for future generations.
