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