Urban Impact’s mission is to offer at-risk youth from the Bridgeport PT Barnum public housing complex educational opportunities through ‘in-school’ & ‘after-school’ activities. These include one-on-one and small group tutoring and mentoring with the purpose of helping youth achieve academic success, develop positive character traits and lead a fulfilling life.
Urban Impact runs 5 weekly programs (no cost for the participants!) for the at-risk youth of PT Barnum. Over the last 12 months, we have reached 306 different kids and engaged with these kids for over 7500 hours. There are 247 active kids (some kids go to all our programs) at our weekly programs.
