Reviews

I have learned to express my anger positively. Instead of punching the wall, punching a face or slamming doors, I will dance it out or write my feelings down on paper. Young Person
My expectations were exceeded with the AWESOMENESS the group brought to our conference! I have been getting emails from teachers who attended that their kids LOVED the event and were INSPIRED by Unity!! From day one Unity has been GREAT to work with and seeing the group in action and how the students reacted and were trilled, THAT is the true testimonial needed to realize the impact of Unity! UNITY TRULY ROCKS!!! Principal
Some students who were feeling down we really brightened up and all of the students had a lot of energy. An autistic student was beaming when he watched the graffiti artist. Many of the students wanted to connect with the artists through social media. They circulated a huge thank you card and gave to the artists at the end. Thanks again for your all your support!
