Starting a Uniteen group?
Uniteens (11-13 years)
Uniteen groups usually meet each Sunday in Unity churches to explore spiritual truths. They provide a safe place for youth in their preteen years (middle school) to connect with others and explore what they believe. Most groups meet for social outings to socialize and develop healthy relationships. Some regions offer weekend Uniteen retreats (Unitreats) that facilitate spiritual exploration.
Resources, including Uniteen Leadership Team Roles and Responsibilities, the Uniteen Program Guide, and regional information will set the foundation for getting you started in teen ministry.
Did you know that you have regional support?
Starting a YOU chapter?
Youth of Unity, ages 14–18
Youth of Unity (YOU) is an active teen ministry for high school students, ages 14–18. Teens usually gather on Sunday to explore and discover spiritual truths and learn how these truths relate to their lives. Most chapters meet at other times to do service in their church community, have a social event, or attend regional or international events.
