Who Are We?

Advent Urban Youth Development is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity.


Our History:

Advent became an official organization in 2011, yet our history of mentoring and working alongside those in the community goes back further. We’ve been working alongside youth and children, local schools, civic organizations, churches, and non-profits organizations since 2007. After many years of accessing the needs of the community, the need for centralizing resources and efforts was needed, thus began Advent.

AUYD’s Mission: We exist to transform under served urban neighborhoods by providing its youth with tangible love, holistic resilience, and authentic community.

AUYD’s CORE Values: Love + Resilience + Community

AUYD’s Target:
