YOU is a safe place for teens to feel at home. It’s an environment full of trust, love, and family. We are accepting and understanding of all people and ideas. As we grow toward adulthood, we explore our spirituality and self-expression to help us become our true selves.
The Youth of Unity (Y.O.U.) welcomes all teens looking for a safe space to explore identity and belief. While based in Unity, YOU celebrates diverse worldviews and encourages belonging and inclusion. Each week, teen members lead lessons on topics such as acceptance, mental health, self-esteem, meditation, and spirituality. We live our truth by going out into the community to serve others. Our service project theme for 2020 is Suicide Prevention and Mental Health Awareness.
Are you looking for a group of teens that truly cares about who you are and wants to make a difference in the world? Do you seek a safe space to explore your identities and beliefs? Is leadership your thing? Are you between the ages of 14 and 18 or currently in high school? Then join us:

What is a Rally:
Rallies are deeply moving spiritual retreats that happen three times a year. These retreats are planned and facilitated by a team of two Regional Representatives, or Regis, who are elected every year at Spring Rally. These two teens work together to plan thought provoking and challenging material that encourages participants to open themselves to the Divine and live their Truth through prayer, meditation, and spiritual exploration.
Fall and Spring Rallies are over a long weekend, while Summer Connection is six days. Other similar opportunities include Leadership Retreat, International Youth of Unity – held at Unity Village, and the annual Zone Lock In mini retreat.
