Programs: 90 Degrees - UYWI Certification Program – 90 Degrees is a 12-month intensive leadership development program designed to support high-capacity youth workers as they impact their ministry and community. 90 Degrees focuses on Leadership and Practical Youth Ministry Skills that leaders can reproduce in the lives of ministry colleagues.

RELOAD – RELOAD is a one-day training conference in major cities across the country that gathers and refuels 150-400 urban youth leaders, teaching them core skills, building their inner life and connecting them through practical workshops, networking opportunities and worship.
The Well –An online resource program designed to provide 24/7 access to practical youth ministry training taught by urban ministry experts from across the country.

360 National Conference – This is a 3-day national training event for urban leaders and youth workers who work with at-risk youth across the country for training, refueling and resourcing.

Our vision is to train urban leaders with a priority in 250 at-risk zip codes in the U.S. Our mission is to provide urban youth the leaders and role models they need to live transformed lives by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Many urban youth leaders and youth ministries lack the capacity to develop ministries that are able to engage the youth they serve. UYWI is investing in these leaders and helping them to build healthy relevant ministries to reach urban youth with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We have trained more than 22,000 leaders over the course of the last 5 years, we have positioned ourselves as the “go-to” brand for training, developing and investing in urban youth workers in many of the most troubled and at-risk areas throughout the U.S.

Our goal is to continue to link arms with some of the best and brightest leaders serving in the trenches of America’s at-risk zip codes and build deeper relationships with them.
