Our education system is failing. Students – particularly minority students – are not pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. We are losing the race in the global marketplace. Here to answer the call is URBAN YOUTH. The organization's STEM-based curriculum programs give urban students access to high-quality education and to the opportunities that achieving in these areas will afford. URBAN YOUTH was born out of the highly successful Urban Youth Racing School, established in Philadelphia in 1998 by Anthony Martin. With a 15-year track record of success behind them, as well as national recognition, they look forward to reversing the plight of urban youth in this country by creating opportunities, igniting careers and transforming lives. Martin and Jordan Walker Pearlman, co-executive producer of the upcoming docuseries centered on the school, joined BUILD.
