Urban Vision firmly believes that today’s North Hill teens are tomorrow’s North Hill leaders. Raising up and training indigenous leaders from within our community is essential to long-lasting revitalization, and we accomplish this leadership development in several ways:
We encourage student involvement as teen volunteers in the programs they loved as children (like Kids’ Club, where two-thirds of our leaders are former participants, or Camp UV, which is run almost entirely by teens).
S.O.S. Leadership Academy helps 6th-12th graders develop positive, change-minded worldviews and take an active role in leading their younger classmates at S.O.S.
Teen/College Internships offer UV youth the chance to get involved as staff, learning about UV’s ministry from a leadership perspective (some of our 2016-17 interns are pictured at right).
And our UV Servant Leadership Scholarship Fund rewards hardworking UV servant leaders by supporting their pursuit of higher education, with the goal of further preparing them to serve their community. (More information here.)
