Urban Youth Impact Mission

Urban Youth Impact exists to love, equip and empower inner-city youth and their parents to fulfill their God-given purpose.

Founded in 1997, Urban Youth Impact serves the Tamarind Avenue corridor and surrounding area in West Palm Beach.  The area has notoriously high crime rates – almost three times the national average for all crime types.  32% of youth living in the community are not expected to graduate from high school, two-thirds live below the poverty level, and it is more likely that youth from our community will go to jail than graduate high school.

Through its programs, UYI seeks to reverse troubling trends and fulfill its mission by offering programs designed to develop critical life-skills that result in less juvenile crime, fewer teen pregnancies, less substance abuse, less child abuse/domestic violence, and fewer school drop-outs.

Can You Pray for a Day?

I'm sure you've prayed over every big decision you've ever made. As Urban Youth Impact grows and continues to face big decisions we're asking you to join us in prayer. God is doing great and exciting things and we look forward to all that He will continue to do. We are launching 21 Days of Prayer & Fasting, from November 1st-21st, and we covet your prayers during the next three weeks. Will you commit to pray for a day or more?

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you,” declares the Lord. ~Jeremiah 29:11-13
