About US

Urban Synergy is an award-winning youth empowerment charity, founded in 2007 with the mission to inspire, guide, and ignite the ambitions of young people. 

Our approach focuses on early support, to build confidence and show young people aged 9-24 years of age from underrepresented communities what’s possible. That’s why we connect them with aspirational - yet relatable -  role models and mentors, as well as industry-leading companies.

Understanding that every young person, their circumstance, and their dreams are unique, we tailor our school programmes, mentoring, and work experience opportunities to help them reach their individual potential. 

With the collaboration of our valued partners, we are building an equitable world where everyone, regardless of their background, is empowered to write their own future.
