URBAN YOUTH was born out of the highly successful Urban Youth Racing School, established in Philadelphia in 1998 by Anthony Martin. With a 19-year track record of success behind us, as well as national recognition, we look forward to reversing the plight of urban youth in this country by creating opportunities, igniting careers and transforming lives.

The mission of Urban Youth is to provide urban youth with exposure to an educational initiatives and mentoring that will engage them in STEM careers in a more holistic way by teaching them how to think critically and independently through preparing them to embrace the depths of all academic subjects for obtaining the skills necessary for successful STEM careers.
