ERIC & SHAWANA MYHRE
Founders and Executive Directors
Eric & Shawana Myhre are the Co-Founders and Executive Directors of URBANLIFE Mentors Inc., a non-profit organization that mentors urban youth, young adults and families. With their three boys (Jadyn, Justyce and Jurni), they love and care for youth in their Oakland neighborhoods.
"THEY MENTOR URBAN YOUTH TO A HIGHER STANDARD FOR LIFE"
Eric and Shawana have passionately worked with youth for over 20 years. URBANLIFE was just a dream early on. Something they often said was, “We have these dreams in the basement of our hearts and they need to come out". As they took the time to unpack that dream, it became a reality. URBANLIFE, EST. 2010, officially became a non-profit organization in June of 2018.
URBANLIFE Mentors Inc. developed its Native Design. With Bay Area and National Influence, ULM Inc. is still in the beginning stages. It is making moves with high standards that build genuine relationships with youth, adults and families with the intent to root indigenous leaders in their communities.
