Our Mission

Younity’s vision is to bring youth-centered programs to Central Oregon and beyond.

The Problem:

Too often anti-bullying efforts are limited to reactionary punishment after damage is done.  School communities need a proactive approach that empowers both youth and adults.

The Challenge:

 In order to flourish in life, youth need:

  • Coping skills and tools to deal with emotions and social situations
  • Resources to help them overcome difficult times
  • The ability to identify strengths
  • And to feel empowered to use their voice and make changes in their community 

Our Solution:

Younity’s pro-active bully prevention efforts focus on identifying the underlying causes of violent and destructive behavior while empowering both youth and adults to make a difference in their own communities.

  • Ensure students, school staff, and parents are educated about the current realities of bullying and methods to counteract bullying before it begins.
  • Through programs such as Younity Inspiration Day and Kindness Programs, students are put in control of the conversation. Each program serves as the catalyst for compassionate interaction between individuals.
