WHAT WE DO
WE MENTOR URBAN YOUTH TO A HIGHER STANDARD FOR LIFE
HOW WE DO
BY GROWING LEADERS IN OAKLAND THROUGH CREATING STRUCTURES OF SAFETY, TRUST AND RESPECT WITHIN A NURTURING ENVIRONMENT
WHY WE DO
OUR CITIES NEED A FAMILY TO GIVE DIRECTION, CORRECTION AND PROTECTION. WE AT URBANLIFE MENTORS CARE DEEPLY ABOUT THE FUTURE OF OUR COMMUNITY. WE BELIEVE WE CAN EFFECT CHANGE THROUGH OUR NATIVE DESIGN.
WE ARE APART OF HELPING YOUNG ACORNS GROW INTO MIGHTY OAKS WITH THE HELP OF A HEALTHY MENTORING FAMILY.
URBANLIFE was EST. 2010 and officially became a non-profit organization in June of 2018. URBANLIFE Mentors Inc. developed its Native Design and what started off as a group of youth and young adults in our East Oakland neighborhood, has matured into a meaningful and influential city wide mentoring organization. Much of the organizations time and focus is spent within its own backyard, West Oakland's Acorn and Lower Bottoms neighborhoods. ULM Inc. is made up of amazing people, it's more like family than an organization. Still in the development stages, ULM Inc. is making moves with high standards of mentoring and discipleship that has made the organization unique and impactful.
