Younity is a non-profit organization dedicated to the development of strong bully-prevention services through youth, adult, and community empowerment.
We believe that the power of bringing people together is the most effective way to recognize, respond to, and reduce bullying in our communities.
We fund, support, and conduct workshops that teach people how to effectively respond to bullying, help them discover their own self power, become more aware of their actions, and develop more compassion in the way they treat others.
What Inspires Us to Action
For millions of young people, bullying, violence, and other forms of oppression are a part of a typical school day. Many students are afraid to walk down the halls for fear of being teased or humiliated. Others feel so alone or frightened they cannot even pay attention in their classes. Recent statistics are alarming and responsible adults are being called to take action.
Younity is a vehicle for bringing bully-prevention programs and workshops to Central Oregon schools, providing administrative support and funding to make the programs a reality. Younity's vision is to bring these and other youth-centered programs to Central Oregon and beyond. Studies have found that a simple message such as 'Bullying is not tolerated' is not likely to be as effective as strong bully-prevention programs that engages the bystander who can step in and stop the behavior.
With knowledge comes power. Younityus.org strives to lessen the impact of bullying on our current society through education and awareness.
Your contribution will go directly to programming for students in Central Oregon.
