What is YOU?
The Youth of Unity (YOU) is an international youth group for teens ages 14-18 (grades 9-12). The purpose of YOU is to encourage and assist in the spiritual growth of all young people who are seeking to express the indwelling Christ in accordance with the principles of practical Christianity as taught and interpreted by Unity World Headquarters at Unity Village and Unity Worldwide Ministries. YOU provides youth the opportunity to explore Unity’s principles and other truth teachings and to demonstrate these in their daily lives.
Any Unity church or study group affiliated with Unity Worldwide Ministries may facilitate an active YOU group.
What is an active YOU group?
An active YOU group:
- Is under the direction of a recognized Unity member ministry of Unity Worldwide Ministries
- Is active in their regional YOU
- Includes one or more teens ranging from the ages of 14 through 18 years of age and at least one adult sponsor
A YOU group typically meets on a weekly basis, usually Sunday morning. Youth discuss and learn a variety of spiritual teachings, attend social gatherings, and become involved in their church and community. Officers, or a leadership team, are often elected to help plan for the local group.
What is a regional representative?
Regional representatives, “regis,” are teens elected each year at their region’s official rally. They plan and lead at least two rallies a year as well as attend and offer their support to other events held during the year. Regis work closely with their regional consultants. Meet the South Central Region regies.
Each Youth Of Unity experience starts with the Sunday morning experience. Learn how to make your Sunday morning the most amazing experience each week.
