Re:Load - Urban Youth Workers Institute

Phil,

I am on the planning committee for the Chicago Re:Load. ReLoad===>Click headline to access . . . is a 1 day confernce that is held in 20 cities around the nation, a local version of the national conference for urban youth workers sponsored by the Urban Youth Workers Institute
(www.uywi.org )

Chicago's conference is Saturday March 3 8:30a-3pm, with a planned bonus session ending around 4:30pm

A suggestion I had was to have something called "Unload", where at any time during the conference, attenders could go to a prayer counselor. We're even suggesting that people skip a seminar (at least 10 options, which would be high quality) if they need prayer -- it's that important. We would love it if you and anyone you know that would be appropriate could come and volunteer. If they could even come for an hour, that would be great.

We would also love to have someone coordinate that aspect of the conference.

For more information contact myself at jp@youthpartnersnet.org or 312-282-2809, or also contact Chicago's coordinator,
