Speaking at Urban Youth Workers Institute in Phoenix

I fly out this afternoon to teach at the Urban Youth Workers Institute RELOAD training in Phoenix this weekend. These guys are the real deal, and I’m really excited to reunite with them and be a part of their important work in urban locales all across America.

Much love.
