We Are O.U.R.

This Little Thing Of OUR's

Ohio Urban Renaissance (O.U.R.) is a newly formed nonprofit organization based in Youngstown, OH and recognized by the State of Ohio receiving tax-exempt designation from the Internal Revenue Service accrediting our 501c3 charitable status.  The organization was founded in 2017 by small business owner and entrepreneur Kevin L. Scott and local high school teacher Ryan Forney. 


The purpose of our organization is to establish and maintain an inclusive brand that will serve as the foundational platform for youth outreach services in addition to community development efforts that promote progress and change in the cultural climate of the inner city.  Ohio Urban Renaissance implements a comprehensively adaptive programming structure that is designed to engage, involve, empower and ultimately impact the progression of our youth as they transition into early adulthood.  Our organizational staff and volunteers are a combination of actively concerned members of the urban community and products of its respective environment.  We are an accumulation of all of our own individual trials and errors, and a sum of those collective lessons and experiences.
