URBAN ALLIANCE
November 14, 2012

I initially learned about Urban Alliance about five years ago when I heard a radio interview with one of its student interns. I was so moved by what the young woman had to say about how Urban Alliance had shown her possibilities for her life that she never even knew existed, that I literally got out of my car, ran into my house, Googled them and have been involved ever since as a volunteer and now as a Board Member. Executive Director Veronica Nolan works tirelessly for these kids and leads a talented and dedicated staff who are passionate about the work that they do with the youth of DC, Baltimore and Chicago. The Urban Alliance organization and the employers who agree to hire and mentor our students are providing them the gift of a life transformed. The young people who come out of this program leave better prepared for college and for living productive and successful lives. Cannot say enough positive things about Urban Alliance!
