At Re:LIFE Inc, we believe that the positive engagement of the mind is the precursor to achieving excellence. Our mission therefore, is to empower youth, especially those who are disconnected and at-risk, through education and entrepreneurship.
2013 URBN Youth StartUPs Info
UYS is in its second year. Our pioneer class of participants consisted of minority youths who were: formerly incarcerated, homeless, in high school, LGBT, at-risk and disconnected, among others. We are excited and proud of the successes that they achieved. All of our students completed the program with business plans and clear trajectories for their future. ALL of our students who were non-college high school graduates, or dropped out of High School before graduation, went on to pass their GEDs, as well as secure college admissions for this Fall. They will ALL be attending CUNY. Also, our youngest student, who founded a lacrosse business during UYS, recently graduated from high school, and was awarded a lacrosse scholarship to attend a SUNY college upstate. These, and the many more success stories that we have had over the last year keep us motivated and determined to ensure that our incoming students will have equal if not more success!
