ABOUT OUR PROGRAM

InterVarsity’s New York City Urban Project exists to see leaders developed with the character and capacity to change the world.  We believe that every person is made in the image of God to flourish, work, rule and create and be stewards NOT consumers as God intended. This is the foundation of our LoGOFF Movement and REConciliation Week 2017. (#RecWeek17) 

New York City will be our world-class classroom for 5 days as we study scripture, pray fervently and respond actively to the commandment to love our neighbors as ourselves. Come and learn to use our 4 P's to Pray, Partner, Purchase, and Policy-shape to seek God's personal, relational and systemic justice in a world filled with relational and systemic injustice. 

Fighting sex-trafficking and labor slavery, building tutoring and mentoring programs or movements to fight climate change and more are all responses to God's desire to RECONCILE all things to Himself.  See you at REConciliation Week!

FAQ'S

When should I arrive and depart for my session? 

Please arrive by 2PM on the first day of your session. You are free to leave anytime after 7am on the Friday morning of your session. 

How should I travel into NYC? 

The best thing to do would be to take public transportation into the city. Do not drive your car to New York City. If you come in on a bus or van service into the city, it should be a drop off. Parking in the city is difficult and we are not responsible for your parking tickets. 

Do I have to stay on-site with everyone?

Yes. Students and volunteers will be required to spend each night at NYCUP Housing.  The goal of NYCUP is for you to build your relationship with God, with the community and with one another.

Where will I be staying? 

Sessions will room at Hostel International NYC, the Local NY or one of our other partners. 

Do I have to be a part of InterVarsity to come?

No, but you must be of college age to attend, 18-29. If you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out. If you are not a part of InterVarsity, you will have to provide at least 1 reference from a pastor, spiritual advisor on campus or faith leader in your community.

Can my church/school help pay for the trip?

Yes! You may ask your student government, church and other groups to co-sponsor to send your group to NYCUP! The gifts are NOT tax-deductible.

Is there a discount for groups?

No, there is not a discount for groups but there is a discount returnees who would like to come as staff. Please email nycurbanproject@gmail.com for more information.

Who should I make my check out to?

If you do not pay in full at the time of arrival, you will not be allowed to participate.

Where does my money go?

Every expense during NYCUP Spring Break will be covered including all food, travel, lodging, materials, speakers, staff and more. Your funds go towards covering this and the work of NYCUP in New York and New Jersey.
