Unity partners with municipal, provincial and federal government agencies and art councils, school boards, private funding partners and more than 40 local arts and youth organizations across Canada, to deliver our signature Hip Hop-based programming, workshops and performances.
Unity’s programs are designed to address the unique needs of youth facing challenges in household income, access to specialized and relevant programming, and access to well-being support services. To eliminate the two most commonly cited systemic barriers to participation (cost and proximity), every program at Unity is offered completely free and our partnerships bring programming to youth in their local communities.
Unity’s program structure provides access to external protective factors and our tailored curriculum design supports the development of internal protective factors to help youth build up resilience.
Youth were inspired through Unity Weeks and the annual Unity Fest
Youth accessed free, weekly Hip Hop meets mental health programming
Artists annually gained creative, business, mentorship & facilitation skills
