ABOUT

About Urgent, Inc.

Est. 1994. URGENT, Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) Miami, FL based youth and community development organization dedicated to empowering young minds to transform their communities. Guided by the principles of innovation, growth and transformation URGENT sees young people as the drivers of change and works to provide empowering opportunities to create the next generation of social change agents.

Rising out of the ashes of the 80’s riots and the depressed urban economy of the 90’s, Urban Renewal Greater Enhancement National Team (URGENT) was founded in 1994 by a small group of concerned residents who wanted to see change in Miami’s urban core. Now a youth and community development corporation, URGENT celebrates 23 years of service to the Miami!
