At UYWI, we want to ensure urban youth workers across everywhere are equipped not only with the tools to reach youth in urban communities, but the knowledge of the contexts and issues they are doing ministry within. From topics like gentrification, gang violence, or even quick tips about leadership, delve into our articles to become a well-informed urban youth leader, prepared for what’s ahead.
