TheInnerU opportunities are brought to you in an effort to try and uplift the urban community. The disparities between youth/young adults of color and the majority are alarming.  It is not because we are incapable of carrying out the same tasks.  It is not because we are deemed less intelligent and therefore perpetuate some horrific stereotype.  More often than not, it is simply because the resources are unavailable to communities of color.  Access and quality are suffering and it is up to us to help each other in any way possible.  TheInnerU hopes to alleviate these educational & professional burdens, by providing access to “invisible” opportunities; tapping into TheInnerU to make the most of yourself as a scholar, professional, and leader.
