Empowering student leaders to share the love of Jesus in practical ways in our city’s schools and neighborhoods.
Urban Youth Collaborative (UYC) is a coalition of 56 church partners that support student-led faith clubs and motivational assemblies at over 100 middle and high school campuses in San Diego County and in Mexico. In San Diego, students serve physical and spiritual food to 3,240 of their friends each week and look for practical ways to make a difference in their local communities. In Mexico, our partners reach 5,000 students each semester at 22 schools in Tijuana, Mexicali, Tecate, Rosarito, Ensenada, and Colonet. Last year, young leaders generated over 30,000 hours of voluntary community service in Southern California and around the globe!
VISION: We believe in the limitless potential and irreplaceable value of every young person and want to see them achieve their full God-given potential. We dream of a day when young leaders across America will gather in student-led campus clubs to live out their dreams of a better future for their friends, families, and communities.
