Urban Kids

Our Mission

Providing greater Birmingham youth opportunities for academic enrichment, health and wellness support, creative arts, and character development.

Our Goals

To inspire a safe, productive, engaging community of leaders and learners.

Who we are

Urban Kids is located at the Urban Ministry building in the heart of the West End Community, across from Hemphill Elementary School. For more than 20 years we have served the community by providing year round, high quality youth programs without charge to families.

Who we serve

Currently, 24 second through fifth grade students are enrolled in the after-school program. Summer 2017 we will welcome 10 rising sixth and seventh grade students in addition to our base of 20 rising third, fourth and fifth grade students.

Our Staff

One full-time director, 3 part-time interns, and over 100 student, parent and community volunteers share with our students the joy of coming together to do ordinary things with extraordinary love.
