Empowering a new generation of Americans
The Unity 4Teens (U4T) Youth Development program was initiated in 2011 in response to the growing need for structure, enrichment and mentoring opportunities for some of the most underserved high school age youth in Broward County. U4T is a year-round program – after-school and summer – that provides structured academic and support services that foster positive youth and family development; create opportunities for educational outreach to students; offer cultural and recreational activities that empower and help students meet/exceed state accountability standards; provide enrichment activities to increase attendance and graduation rates; reduce substance abuse, teen violence, and teen pregnancy; and assist youth in developing the skills and abilities to successfully transition to post-secondary education and employment.
U4T serves youth who attend Miramar and Stranahan High Schools.
This program would not be possible without the support and leadership of:
