This November, over 200 leaders from all over the world will gather in Camden for UrbanPromise International's Summit-a 2-day event where staff from around the world come together to reflect, connect, and learn from one another.
The Summit is a time of renewal and inspiration filled with keynote speakers, engaging workshops, sessions for sharing best practices, and community meals. This year, leaders will be coming from as far as Malawi and Honduras and many are opting to bring younger staff to provide them with a glimpse of the scope of UrbanPromise’s work. “Working with youth in under-resourced communities is demanding, exhausting and potentially isolating,” says Dr. Main. “The Summit is an opportunity for the UP community to find renewal and challenge through fellowship and reflection.” Jimmy McQuilkin, founder of UPI’s affiliate site in Charlotte, NC has been looking forward to the Summit all year, sharing that the event “reminds us of why we are a part of UrbanPromise-because we believe that children and youth, regardless of the zip code in which they grow up, have the potential to become leaders that expand God’s kingdom in their communities.”
