Welcome to Urban Therapeutic Solutions
Helping Youth Overcome Barriers
Today’s urban youth face many barriers. Encounters with marginalization and alienation continue to create obstacles for these youth as they pursue goals and strive to reach their optimal potential. Such disparities often have a negative impact on youth self-efficacy and self- esteem. Our mission is to provide activity-based programs for at-risk youth and youth with disabilities ages 8-18, empowering them to reach their highest potential.

The ESTEEM Group Project
The Premier Program of Urban Therapeutic Solutions
The ESTEEM Group Project is an interactive activity-based program with a focus on self-esteem building. Participants engage in group activities related to current and historical events that include racial discrimination and social justice. Through a variety of activities, participants learn coping skills, how to resolve conflicts and strategies to enhance their self-worth in a world which often devalues them.
