Youth for Unity is an excellent program for your child to learn about diversity and its importance in our society. It will provide your child with the skills and knowledge to recognize and confront bias and discrimination. The program will also help your child understand that everyone is unique and special, and help them appreciate their own differences. Ultimately, your child will gain a better understanding of how to foster a more inclusive, equitable, and just society.

BGCA’s Youth for Unity program provides youth and parents with the groundwork that will help them better understand diversity and combat prejudice, bigotry and discrimination. This program consists of a comprehensive, broad-based set of activities and conversation starters 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.
