PowerUP WorkDays

PowerUP WorkDays are one of the best ways to serve in urban ministry! We structure our half day service days to go from 9am – 2pm so its only a half day commitment!

Here’s a short breakdown of what you and your group would be accomplishing:

8:50 – 9:00 am (sharp!) You and your group arrive, meet the other UrbanPromise Staff and interns and meet other volunteers joining you for your day of service

9:00 – 9:30 am Listen to a short introduction about UrbanPromise, how we started and a short description of events for the day. UP Staff and interns will also introduce themselves to work with you throughout the morning.

9:30 am – 12:00 pm – Divide up into teams to tackle various projects – anything from weeding the garden to stuffing envelopes for next months newsletter! Your team may have skilled individuals who have been selected to work on a particular project at one of the UP Staff Houses, School / Office or one of our other sites.  Clean up and be back to the office

12:00 – 12:30 – Come back as a group and break into lunch

12:30 – 1:30 pm – StreetLeader Panel Discussion. Listen to some of our young people from UrbanPromise as they share about their experiences in Wilmington. We seek to provide a safe space to talk about some of the tough issues surrounding urban ministry. Our joy is in allowing these young people to speak from experience and allow those outside of the city to understand more about issues including poverty, violence, crime, racial and cultural prejudices.

1:30-2:00 pm – Pack up and head home!
