Urban Impact’s mission is to offer 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 479 different kids and engaged with these kids for over 13,128 hours.  There are 397 active kids (some kids go to all our programs) at our weekly programs.

Get Involved Today With Urban Impact


Urban Impact is an organization that is entirely run by volunteers.  We have over 100 people who serve with us on a weekly basis and we would love for you to join us in serving in one of our various programs.  Please read the descriptions below about ways to volunteer and contact us about getting started with an application.  All volunteers must go through an applications and screening process before serving in any of our programs with kids.  This process should not scare you, but should help you know that we value each and every volunteer.

Please contact us at info@urbanimpactct.org if you would like to serve.  We will contact you in return about how to get the process started.
