UNITY Community Center

Mission, Vision, & Goals

Mission

Unity is a multicultural family-based center inspiring youth, strengthening the family, and building community.


Vision

The Unity Community Center is a multicultural community of families with a support system focused on enrichment of its youth and directing families towards resources. Out-of-school time programming provides the youth in this community the opportunity to receive tutoring, enrichment, and academic programming in a safe environment that promotes BIG M – Belonging, Independence, Generosity and Mastery.

The vision of Unity, with the help of volunteers, educators, employers, and social service agencies, is to empower its members for the academic and professional world to become life-long learners. Unity strives to build communities that rely on each other, grow together and inspire those around them.


Goals

Increase knowledge and interest in future educational opportunities.

Give adults and youth creative and innovative ways to interact and work with others in a positive setting.

Increase participation in community service and awareness of community resources.

Increase grade point averages, attendance, and behavior of participants attending local schools.
