THANK YOU for seeing the need to create bright paths ahead for youth who are struggling, and for acting on that insight. You are making a difference we can all be thankful for on #ThankYouThursday!
Today we are thankful for all the amazing people around us who support growth and change in our communities by giving youth, who are facing challenges, the chance to Light Up Their Life at Urban Stable!
Let’s keep the giving movement going this holiday season and continue our goal to Light Up A Life!
Help Urban Stable support five youth, facing challenges, to attend our hands-on learning program with horses.
Your gift will Light Up A Life this holiday season!
After all more beautiful than the holiday lights is a Life that is Lit Up!
“My horse helped me overcome my fears, to relax and not worry.”

“The horses helped me to see the small movements and become more detail orientated.”

Growing up can be tough. Youth can experience stress and isolation at school from not belonging to the popular cliques or feeling unsuccessful in classes. At Urban Stable we help youth to overcome challenges and develop life skills to re-engage with themselves, their education and community.
Working in a team is fun, sharing ideas, reaching goals, but sometimes teams struggle with misunderstandings, impatience, and conflicts. This can cause in increase in stress and productivity suffers. Our Leadership Development sessions can address these common workplace challenges and get your team working together cohesively, reduce stress and help your team achieve their goals.
