Urban Youth Excel currently partners with 4 urban churches: Victory Outreach, Way of Life Church, Barrio Breakthrough Church and NewCity Phoenix and 4 Para-Church ministries: Young Life, Neighborhood Ministries, Fellowship of Christian Athletes and Pathfinders. Currently there are over 1,000 youth in our caseload and we serve over 150 kids in weekly Bible studies.
