MEET URBAN MENTOR

OUR VISION

We envision ourselves as the catalyst to change the narrative of youth in undeserved communities by creating a standard of trustworthy, proven trans-formative practices and programming.

 

The vision of URBAN MENTOR is to meet the needs of not only youth, but mentors and youth leaders, in urban communities as a centralized hub for resources, tools, training.

OUR STORY

Our founder, Leonitha Francis, knew that she would need to create her own way to pursue her passion of mentoring teenagers after being rejected by mentoring organizations for not having attained a certain level of pedigree or perceived "life experience" in her early 20's.

In 2015, she dubbed herself an "Urban Mentor", one passionate about mentoring youth from urban and under-served communities like the one she came from.

Urban Mentor is a community of dedicated mentors, teachers, youth leaders and thought leaders who serve urban or under-served communities.

Urban Mentor is a network resource for organizations, independent mentors and families who are seeking tools, training and curriculum to better serve their youth.

Mentors are often the guardians of exposure. Urban Mentor promotes mentorship as a conduit of exposure to youth who would have otherwise been unaware.

Urban Mentor educates our mentors and partners on innovative and creative practices to in turn effectively impact the youth we reach directly and indirectly through our partnering organizations.

Through exposure and education, Urban Mentor empowers mentors and youth to be the difference. By being the difference, our mentors are able to optimally serve our youth, simultaneously, our youth are encouraged to tap into their latent abilities. Together, both groups develop a homogeneous relationship.
