Enhancing Your Youth Ministry Program

 

Curriculum
  • Unity Worldwide Ministries offers curriculum for all ages. Our curriculum page gives an overview of what is available and offers guidance in selecting curriculum.

 

Training and Credentialing

The best way to have a Unity-based, vibrant, safe educational environment for your children and teens is to have trained youth and family directors, teachers - and ministers.

  • Certified Spiritual Educator training will boost your effectiveness and mastery in the classroom. It is the first-level of certification for those serving the youth of our Unity movement.
  • National YFM Training Week is national training for Unity youth ministry teachers, leaders, sponsors and directors.

 

Additional resources
  • Regional Support - Unity ministries in the United States are divided into seven regions. In each region, educational consultants support and enrich spiritual development of youth and those who serve them.
