We are stronger, more vibrant, and a clearer embodiment of God’s Kingdom, youth leaders. We are leaning on each other to prevail through this chaos, and UYWI couldn’t be more proud of you. We ask that you continue to stay connected with us, whether that’s joining our Urban Youth Workers National Network of Leaders Facebook Group, subscribing to our YouTube channel, or simply sharing this video. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
We hope you enjoy what we cooked up for you. Thanks to all those who submitted images and videos to this project, which was created by YOU. ⁣⁣


We exist to develop the urban youth worker so that urban youth have the leaders and role models they need to live transformed lives by the Gospel of Jesus Christ.


UYWI fuels a movement of healthy urban leaders who lead generations of youth to restore and rebuild broken communities globally.
