Welcome to Unity of Bon Air's Youth Education Program
We understand that our Sunday School and Youth Groups may be one of the few opportunities each week for children and teens to reflect on and nurture the spiritual aspects of their lives. Our classes are designed to develop a practice of meditation and prayer, to learn about the many paths to Spirit, and to create a loving and fun environment for our youth to feel their connectedness to God.
Our Youth Education program includes customized programs for:
- UniTots and UniSparks: age 3 through 5th grade.
- UniTeens: 6th, 7th and 8th grades.
- Youth of Unity (YOU), the youth organization for kids in 9th through 12th grades.
- Child care is available for toddlers to three years.
All Youth Education programs, and child care, are offered during the 11am Sunday Service.

Future Leaders of a Peaceful World
from Melody Neal, Youth & Family Ministry Director
This past spring I had the privilege of coordinating a bus trip to the March for Our Lives rally in Washington, DC. Our inter-generational group felt an overwhelming sense excitement as we arrived and saw buses from all over the country, all there to promote peace and work toward the elimination of gun violence. As we marched, we were greeted with signs of encouragement and gratitude from the residents of DC, but nothing prepared us for the amazing gathering that we encountered as we arrived! Over 850,000 were gathered to remember those lost to violence, and to stand up for peace. The speakers were young people ranging in age from 10 to 17. Their words were inspirational and eloquently spoken, and we knew in that moment that we were seeing great future leaders of our country and the world. My goal as an educator is to teach peace and Unity principles. The future is bright because of our kids, and we can all have a part encouraging our children as they grow into peaceful Unity warriors.
