About Us

Urbannature4kids is a Michigan registered non-profit. Our goal is to mentor children and young adults as they develop academic interests. We want to help build the interest in science, technology, and math career fields. Not only will these disciplines play a huge role in preserving the environment going forward, they will also become increasingly lucrative.

We also understand the educational gap between affluent and low income communities. We want to contribute to the former of the two. There is an urgent need for low income communities in Michigan to develop educational and career readiness standards. It is essential for children to know the importance of taking care of nature and the environment. Earth is our only home, and we must take care of it.

About the Founder and CEO:

My name is Raven Wright and I’m the Founder and CEO of Urban Nature for Kids.  My primary mission is to expose diverse youth located in low-income communities to career possibilities in the environmental STEM fields, including Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Geology, Environmental Engineering, and Environmental Science. Young scholars can benefit from an online and mobile education tool that connects them to the environment.

 

As a woman of color in the GIS field, with degrees in Geology and Urban Planning, my goal is to provide fascinating learning tools and cultivate a workforce pipeline for diverse students into the environmental STEM career fields, particularly to address climate change. A workforce pipeline for underserved youth contributes to sustainable solutions and climate adaptation planning. I welcome multisectoral collaboration. Contact me regarding possibilities.

 

Urban Nature for Kids is a Black-led and woman-owned non-profit organization located in Detroit, Michigan.
