All children deserve to experience this world and all the opportunities available. UA does a great job opening up a world of possibilities to them.
THE URBAN ALLIANCE WORKS DILIGENTLY AND CREATIVELY TO ASSIST OUR YOUTH AND ACHIEVING THEIR GOALS AND ASPIRATIONS IN HIGH SCHOOL AND BEYOND BY OPENING UP NEW WORLDS AND EXPERIENCES FOR THEM. THEY HELP STUDENTS BELIEVE THEY CAN AND WILL BE SUCCESSFUL AND IMAGINE BETTER LIVES BEYOND THEIR CURRENT ENVIRONMENT AND CIRCUMSTANCES.
I have been mentoring through the Urban Alliance for four years, and it has been the most rewarding experience. It is exciting to see the students mature throughout the year. Their confidence increases and they become more focused on their goals.
The staff at the Urban Alliance are professional and attentive to the needs of the students in the program.
Working with Urban Alliance has been a wonderful experience! Not only is the staff professional and friendly, but so is the youth they work with. Serving as a mentor has been such a positive experience for me. There is nothing more amazing than seeing a high school senior develop into a young adult in less than a year. Urban Alliance is a one of a kind program and I would encourage anyone I can to work with them in whichever way they are able.
As a graduate, this was the greatest, most beneficial, and supportive program I've ever joined. Everyone was a joy to be around, and they all had an enormous impact on my life as a professional and a person!
I have worked closely with Urban Alliance for many years, i could not think of how my work in the work place would be without my young ladies and gentlemen. They help from filing to audits to every powerpoint and TV displays throughout the hotel. They are a true pleasure and joy to have, they teach me many new things with tech information. They think that we are teaching them but they are teaching us as well. They are an inspiration to my entire staff and all the ladies in gentlemen love to speak and ask them what are they going to do in their future. I truly dont know how we would get along without them. Thank you for all your help and support.
We have participated with Urban Alliance for a few years and I have know great young ladies that are very focus on their future and are very positive with our host at the Marriott. They quick to learn and eager to show their skill. As a mentor I would not know what to do with out them.
Participating in urban alliance as a mentor has been the most rewarding thing I have done. As a mentor my goal is to ensure that the intern is motivated and inspired to be the best he/she can be. For the first time last year I participated in the Urban Alliance mentorship program and to be honest I was not sure what I was getting myself into. However, the urban alliance mentorship program changed my life! It was rewarding in so many ways. Recently, my intern wrote me a thank you card that made me nearly cry. It stated, “It is not very often that I say this but THANK YOU for helping me so much. You gave me so much great advice when I needed it. You motivated me to do better and always told me the right thing. I know I can always call you when I need anything and for that I just want to thank you.”
Urban Alliance is a great organization working to empower and strengthen our youth. They work they do around providing these young people for success is outstanding. I partner with Urban Alliance to teach financial literacy to their interns. The knowledge they take away will be valuable to the success of their financial future. I truly love the public speaking challenge that is held at the end of the internships. As a supporter and partner of Urban Alliance, I'm able to hear true testimony as to how the students value their internships and the relationships they have built with their mentors.
Urban Alliance is one of the best non-profits working with our youth. It's my pleasure to work with Stephanie Amponsah and Natasha Muhammad. I will continue to support the work they do to empower our youth.
Internships are valuable for our young people. Any organizations out there that has the passion for giving back, partner with Urban Alliance to provide internships for our youth.
