Description of Agency: Future Urban Leaders, or FUL, is a Milwaukee based 501C3 that collaborates with institutions, businesses, organizations, and other passionate individuals to engage our youth in a variety of leadership development programs. At its core, Future Urban Leaders is about giving our kids the tools to improve their lives, their communities, and help them define for themselves what they want to do in life. The programs we provide our students fall under the core areas of Health and Wellness, Arts and Humanities, and STEM. FUL programming engages scholars in grades K4 through 8th with a student to adult ratio no greater than 8 to 1.

Tuesday Programming: Our programming is scaffolded and organized by grade level. Our K4-2nd grade scholars, or Young Einsteins, participate in station based programming in our Maker’s Space rooms. Our 3rd through 6th grade scholars, or Leadership Interns, are exposed to eight different programs throughout the year. Each grade level receives its own program focus area each quarter and rotates quarterly. Our 7th and 8th grade scholars are provided the opportunity to select a specific program they’re interested in exploring and dedicate themselves to that program for a semester. Some of the programs we’re offering our scholars this year include Future City Competition, Lego Robotics, The Creative Society, Yoga and Mindfulness, Visual Arts, Social Justice and Financial Literacy, First Stage Character Education, and Maker’s Space.

Wednesday Programming: On Wednesdays we provide 45 minutes of small group academic support from 4:00-4:45 followed by 45 minutes of recreational activities from 4:45-5:30. Our academic support consists of individualized plans that meet each child within their zone of proximal development in a core subject area. We do allow time for scholars to be supported on homework, but also understand that if a skill is missing to complete that homework, the skill needs to be practiced before the homework can be mastered. The 45 minutes of recreation is focused on building and strengthening positive relationships with scholars using activities that may include board games, art projects, computer games, sports or gym activities, acting, or reading to one another.
