Headquartered in Washington, DC, Urban Ed's mission is to provide District of Columbia children, youth, and adults with technology-driven education, information, and skill development for sustained futures.
Lack of education and low performance early in children's educational paths lead to the multiple issues we face in our communities such as truancy, high dropout rates, high unemployment, and ultimately perpetual poverty. Education and literacy is the root to these issues and Urban Ed's approach is to address current issues as well as root causes.
Saydam Properties Group works closely with Urban Ed to support the board in their mission to help DC residents gain marketable workplace skills in the IT field, and expose them to various levels of technology. Sheena served on the board for three years, including two years as Chair of the Board. We continue to support their efforts through monetary donations, and are currently working on a speaker series to bring to the students.
