“Plus-1″ Program: Show Not Tell
New for Reload 1.2.3: Experience what empowered student leadership looks like. All Reload 1.2.3 trainers will feature a protege in the training experience. Youth workers: bring your top student leaders. Share the experience together.
Greater NY youth workers are already familiar with Reload, the best-of-class, one-day training experience offered by Urban Youth Workers Institute (UYWI) in 20+ cities each year. Metro New York has hosted Reload for 4 of the last 5 years, in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens. Each of the last 3 years the region has set the attendance mark for Reload nationally, with more than 900 gathering last year at Christ Tabernacle in Queens.
This year, Greater New York and New Jersey will innovate Reload 1.2.3.
In UYWI’s ongoing effort to make quality training accessible to grassroots youth workers close to where they minister and at a price they can afford, NY/NJ will host the first multi-site, multi-state Reload conference on June 12, 2010. That’s right:
* 1 Conference

* 3 Sites
Even more exciting, Reload 1.2.3 will demonstrate what empowered youth leadership looks like as emerging leaders will be integrated into every aspect of the day.

As you may have heard, in January the Coalition of Urban Youth Workers transitioned leadership from co-chairs Walter Sotelo and Kevin Young to me as its new Chairperson. After serving the Coalition for three years in a supportive function as the architect of 20/20 Vision for Schools, it is an honor to have been asked to assume a leadership role again after that assignment ended.
This Monday, February 8, is our regular network meeting from 10-12. In January, Coalition presented a vision for 2010 that includes connecting youth workers, cultivating leadership, collaborative partnerships, and communicating for greater Kingdom effectiveness.
This month, we will unpack those ideals in an effort to bring training resources, collaborative opportunities, and connecting points with other youth workers closer to where we actually serve in ministry.
What: Network and Planning Meeting
Where: Nyack College Manhattan Center
361 Broadway (b/w Leonard and Franklin Streets)
6th Floor Conference Room
When: Monday February 8, 10 am – 12 pm
Who: NYC church and para-church youth workers
Why: Trained youth workers collaborating for exponential Kingdom impact
Please RSVP your attendance via email. Thank you!
