Our Mission

UrbEd is a for-students-by-students organization that advocates for students and families that are being deprived of a quality and efficient, urban education. We as a non-profit work directly with students, parents, teachers, school staff, policy-makers and organizations fighting for the same objective. We hope that students are able to be provided a quality and efficient urban education by 2026.


Our Vision

We want every urban student receiving a quality and efficient urban education by 2026! A quality education means that every student's school (be it public, private, or charter) inculcates within them with the necessary skills and knowledge that will enable them to flourish in the professional and personal facets of life. We seek to improve and complement the education that a student receives to further prepare them for setting and attaining their goals.
