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 – 1:30pm so it’s only a half day commitment!

**We have made some adjustments to the day due to COVID.  We will require that all volunteers and staff wear masks while working.  Not all groups will start at the same location, and we will have a limited number of slots, so please let us know you’re coming ahead of time!

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  UrbanPromise Staff and 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 – 11:50 am – 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

11:50 am – 12:00 pm – Wrap up and clean up at each location

12:00 am – 12:30 pm – Bring your own bagged lunch and enjoy some fellowship

12:30 am – 1:30 pm – StreetLeader Panel: Hear from some of our teens who are shaping their neighborhoods
