To close the opportunity gap for Black and Brown individuals 18-34 years old in pursuit of personal and professional growth.
Urgent 365 is a collective of artists and professionals who create spaces and facilitate opportunities to empower our community and foster growth through social education, interactive workshops and resource distribution.
In 2018, Urgent 365 impacted over 300 lives in the area of women’s empowerment and youth programming. Launching a partnership with the Woodstock Family Center, the Urgent team organized a Mother’s Day donation initiative which created 64 mind-body-spirit baskets for the 64 mothers at the center in addition to facilitating quarterly sessions with the parents. Urgent 365 also partnered with YSI to run the 17th annual teen conference at Temple University which serviced over 200 students from Chester, Jersey, and Philadelphia.
In addition to school and camp conflict resolution workshops, our most impactful ongoing endeavor is our annual Trunk Party drive started in 2018. For the past three years we've sent over 30 college freshman off to college with essential items from bedding and desk lamps to $250 book awards and laptops. In conjunction with this initiative we also hold a celebratory Trunk Party event where we hold panels for recipients and guardians along side acknowledging each student for their accomplishments and college acceptance. As we expand this program we hope to not only assist with getting students to college, but also with seeing them through graduation.
