Youth for Unity

As part of Youth for Unity, Members make Chinese lanterns for the Lunar New Year.

Youth for Unity is the hallmark program of Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s diversity initiative. Youth for Unity provides youth and parents with the groundwork that will help them better understand diversity, and combat prejudice, bigotry and discrimination.

 As our nation becomes increasingly diverse, young people need the knowledge and skills to thrive in a globally connected society and world. Youth for Unity consists of a comprehensive, broad-based set of programmatic interventions that build the capacity of local Clubs to help members:

  •  Appreciate themselves as unique and special individuals;
  • Understand our society’s diversity;
  • Recognize bias and unfairness; and
  • Take personal leadership in confronting bias.
