The Urban Leadership Development Institute's mission is to reduce the opportunity gap in under represented and low income communities. ULDI’s programs and services work in the following areas: Youth and Community Development, Education, Business and Leadership.
The Training Right in Business & Education Program (TRIBE) in partnership with schools and non profits, ULDI engages local leaders as volunteers and mentors to inspire at-risk students while teaching entrepreneurship, financial literacy, mentoring and student governance. The outcomes are students gain confidence, build positive peer-to-peer relationships, and develop leadership skills in the areas of initiative, accountability, responsibility, teamwork and self-reliance.
The TRIBE goals are to increase Student Success by reducing the drop out rates while improving the graduation rates of our participants. Thus, we start with addressing student attendance and academic achievement by utilizing entrepreneurship models as tools to contextualize the importance of education.
