About The Organizations

The mission of The Warnock Foundation is to support innovative ideas and people who are thinking outside the box to improve the lives of the citizens of Baltimore. Our vision is to provide a platform for Baltimore’s thought leaders and community that will help them utilize their talents and energy to move Baltimore in a positive direction.

Urban Alliance is building a diverse next-generation workforce by providing job skills training, mentoring, and paid internships to young people of color during high school. Since 1996, Urban Alliance has provided over 5,700 internships to underserved youth across Washington, DC, Northern Virginia, Baltimore, Chicago, and Detroit. They fight for equity by empowering students to access upwardly-mobile careers, expanding their idea of what’s possible for the future while supporting the development of diverse talent pipelines and preventing disconnection from school or the workforce. In partnership with over 250 employers, Urban Alliance levels the playing field for young people of color by equipping them with the tools to overcome the systemic barriers that prevent them from equitably accessing economic opportunity.
