Affinity Groups

Identify. Link. Collaborate.

Wouldn’t connecting with like-minded youth leaders to share resources and ideas be helpful?

You can with DVULI Affinity Groups!

In response to your request to connect with fellow alumni who serve in the same ministry specialties, we will conduct Zoom dialogs for 13 ministry specialties.

We host two monthly dialogs, allowing for two annual calls per Affinity Group. 

To join these national conversations, please identify one to five ministry specialties from the list below, and we will invite you via email: 

      1. After-School Tutoring 
      2. Arts (music, dance, worship) 
      3. Athletics (sports, recreation & fitness) 
      4. Gang Intervention & Prevention 
      5. Homeless & Unsheltered Teens 
      6. Juvenile Detention and Prison Ministry
