About Urban Synergy

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.
