Our youth leadership program, Urban University, is open to students in 7th through 12th grades who are committed, willing to give their best, and open to personal growth. Application windows are first extended to students living within the Erie City School District and then to students within surrounding Erie County areas.

Our program consists of three sessions within the year that include summer workshops and afterschool programs engaging students through a variety of hands-on learning experiences.
