|Save the Date! |
Urban Ed has moved to a new location! We are now in the Anacostia Professional Building. Equipped with two computer labs, a conference/resource room, an activity room, repair room and a dedicated Microsoft testing room, it's bigger and better and we have more space to serve more youth and young adults from the community. Please join us on Thursday, October 29, 2009 from 4:00 P.M. - 7:00 P.M. to check out our new home. Our new address is 2041 Martin Luther King Jr. Ave, SE, Suite M-2, Washington, DC 20020
|Our Programs are expanding
We are expanding our Pathways to Prosperity programs for children and teens. For the 2009 -2010 school year we will be partnering with Patterson Elementary School to bring our Lil Bitties TechnoAcademy to children in 1st thru 3rd grades. We will also be adding an academic and leadership component to our Teen TechnoAcademy and working with the DC justice system to help youth in need of supervision. Our goal is to serve 125 youth. Thanks to the Center for Neighborhood Enterprise for providing support to help us develop a unique technology-based curriculum for children that is aligned with the DCPS academic standards.
|Volunteer For Our Creative Programs
Nearly all of the 46 schools in our wards have more than 80% of their students that are NOT proficient in reading and math. Urban Ed is using technology in creative and unique ways to help our children and youth excel in school and with our program expansions we need dedicated people. We need 10 to 15 volunteers to serve as tutors and support our technology instruction. Help us make a difference! Click Volunteer

SUPPORT INNOVATION! Our communities need your support. Literacy is a crisis in our schools. The vast majority of teens do not make it past the 10th grade. Unemployment is double the rate of the entire District. Please support our mission to provide technology education, information and skill development to unemployed and underemployed youth and young adults.
