For over 25 years, Universal Companies has remained committed to improving communities and changing lives through cultural and entrepreneurial opportunities that break the cycle of generational poverty within historically disenfranchised communities. We have made significant strides in developing communities throughout the Philadelphia region by delivering quality K-12 education and childcare, youth development programs, affordable housing, assistance for seniors, and by remaining thought leaders in policy, education and economic development.
Join us on Thursday, December 6, 2018 from 6:00pm – 8:30pm at Universal Audenreid Charter High School for An Evening of Style and Grace. This is our largest fundraiser event of the year which supports our youth development programs Pearls of Wisdom, From Boys to Men, The Universal Culinary Academy and Universal Champion Basketball Team.
As we celebrate our accomplishments, we also remain humble and acknowledge that many of our achievements would not have been possible without the support of generous sponsors, community leaders and Universal champions.
Through our state-of-the-art industry-standard kitchen, Universal Scholars develop their culinary and hospitality skills, earn industry-recognized certifications and participate in competitions.
One of five Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs Universal Audenried offers, the Culinary Arts Academy provides Scholars with training, supplemental program material, and classroom visits from industry content and technique experts. Universal Scholars are also exposed to internships; community service events and real-world work experience opportunities to enhance their classroom learning and preparation for post-secondary education.
