The Urban Edge team comprises wilderness therapy, aftercare, and clinical professionals who share the belief that mentorship is a key to young adult success.
How We Got Started
Andrew and Clay met while working for a therapeutic wilderness program in Utah in 2006. They lived together, travelled together, stayed in touch. Fast forward–Andrew and Clay reconnected to start their first young adult program together. Through that experience, they learned a lot. One thing they both saw a need for was a program in the city, where clients would be given the right opportunities to thrive both personally and professionally. They also saw a need for a balance between professional and personal growth that only a city can offer. When gauging where to open up their newest program, Denver is the place that made the most sense. Not only is there nature (and all its glory), but it’s a hub filled with progressive companies, the nation’s top schools and one of the best places in the US for young people to succeed.
