Urban College of Boston was started by Action Boston for Community Development (ABCD), the nonprofit organization in which our classrooms and administration are housed. Without ABCD's guidance and perseverance, we wouldn't be the College we are today! ABCD offers a variety of services to the underprivileged communities around Boston, as well as superb Head Start centers were many of our students work. Learn more about ABCD here.
As part of our ongoing initiatives, Urban College seeks partnerships with community based organizations like the Asian American Civic Association and La Alianza, and seeks to find ways to help immigrants get the education they need to live successful lives in Boston. Our three Institutes (Financial Services Institute, Early Childhood Institute, and Institute for New Americans) will be instrumental in securing our role as a leader in helping community based organizations.
