Join the National Conversation!

By Eileen Schuring, Intern

Affinity Groups serve as the DVULI alumni conversation hub, where like-minded youth leaders share resources, experiences, and ideas. Twice a month, alumni-led Zoom conversations convene, connecting leaders who serve urban youth to discuss important subjects related to their ministry type.

To be notified of Affinity Groups you may be interested in, you need to identify your ministry specialties on the DVULI Alumni Directory.  You can do that by logging into your DVULI.org profile HERE.

While you are there, please ensure your contact info is correct so you can receive the Zoom invitation via email.
