What We Do

Committed to social change, urban university is a non-profit organization that delivers workforce training, coaching and retention solutions in partnership with individuals, community based organizations and the business sector.

We seek to inspire and empower today's workforce by providing:
- Soft skills training and coaching to adults
- A safety net of support for single working mothers
- Leadership development training and coaching for front-line supervisors

Our workforce development programs have a common purpose, to create a participatory workforce through the development of its' most important asset - people. To reach these goals, we offer on-site internship and job opportunities through our two secondhand stores, Urban Furniture and Urban Boutique, where we provide career and personal development training.
