In an ongoing effort to bring training resources closer to where urban youth workers actually serve young people, Urban Youth Workers Institute began implementing various training and mentoring initiatives regionally beginning in 2009. After launching offices in the Southeast (Atlanta) and West Coast (Los Angeles) Regions under the leadership of Anthony Flynn and Dr. Gabe Veas respectively in Summer 2009, UYWI announced its Northeast Region at the Bizarro World conference in Brooklyn in January 2010.
The Northeast regional roll-out strategy begins by connecting, training, and mentoring youth workers in the Greater New York area in 2010 with the goal of expanding to eventually include the entire Boston – Washington DC corridor beginning in 2011. Please join us in praying for youth workers of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut as they initiate learning communities; produce the first ever multi-site, multi-state Reload; coach local network leaders; and decentralize training opportunities throughout the region.
