Greetings Students and Parents

The Erie City Mission's Urban University youth program exists to develop students (7th - 12th grade) in Erie County toward servant leadership through a variety of experiences that include career exploration, academic enrichment, mentorship, service learning, and faith formation.

Our program offers three semesters (summer, fall, winter) that include a variety of hands-on learning and family experiences that provide participants the opportunity for leadership development.
