Kino Carson CEO
About the Founder
Due to my participation in athletics, I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to further my education and at the same time, gain the knowledge and understanding as to the importance of education. Like many people who believed in me, helping me to retain my goals and setting high standards, like-wise my wish is to have an influence on other young lives and encourage him/her to set high goals. I have been blessed, and thankful for my coaches (high school and college), teachers and most of all my parents for their influence in leading me down the right path.
Being a product of the Oakland CA. I believe that change starts at the top. I am concerned that too many of our young men and women have been falling through the cracks or settling for less. Urban Heat Academy is designed to inspire our youth to further their education and be the best that they can possibly be.
At Urban Heat Academy we pride ourselves in the daily contribution to individual and community wellbeing. We believe that by sharing common values we can increase the opportunity of each individual in the community. Our staff members are a diverse group of individuals with a wide range of skills and expertise. Our goal is to make a difference in your life and those around us.

Our mission is to help improve communities by providing enrichment activities that will help to enable and encourage our youth to be the best that they can possibly be. Our primary focus is for kids in grades K-12 to understand the importance of being healthy and continuously being physically active, understanding the importance of exercising, eating healthy, and personal hygiene.
The Urban Heat Program believes that it is critical for all children in today society be too prepared for college, which has become a requirement in order to be successful in today?s rapid technical economy. The Urban Heat program provides tutoring for students who struggles academically in Math, Science, and English as well as provides fine Art programs (Poster Contest, drill/step programs) which will allow children to be creative, develop skills through dance and performing arts.
The drop-out rate continues to increase throughout several school districts across the nation. It is critical for our youth understand how to deal with the very many challenges that they are faced with today in today?s society. Things such as, how to resolve conflict; how to express themselves and communicate with peers; how to be a leader and hold true to their values and beliefs; how to choose their friends carefully and carry themselves in a professional manner when needed. By providing conferences and seminars for both students and parents, traveling to visit other places and studying different cultures, as well honoring young people who make a difference in their community. Our mission is to help students stand out and let their light shine
We want to help create well-rounded students who will infect those around them with positivity, while they themselves continue to implement change. The Urban Heat academy program is dedicated to providing mentor programs, student forums, and community outreach experiences that will improve communities? one child at a time.
