Review for Urban Alliance, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Urban Alliance provides the necessary resources in youth development for future success wherever a student's aspirations lead them - college, career, military. The keys to success are not always available to every family. While parents and families only want what's best for their child, they don't always have first hand experience or know where to look for those tools. Urban Alliance empowers students to own their future by consistently providing professional development.

I have seen students begin their internships nervous but willing to do a good job. Helping them on the job site by reinforcing what they are taught through their professional (youth) development sessions has tremendous rewards for the workplace. By the end of their internship I am able to see a student who no matter what they chose knows what's needed to be successful.

Over 5 years none have disappointed me!
