Meet the People Behind It All

Here are the dedicated people that serve on Younity's Board:



Younity believes that the power of bringing people together is the most effective way to recognize, respond to and reduce bullying in our communities.  We fund, support and conduct workshops that teach people how to effectively respond to bullying in its many forms, help them discover their own self-power, become more aware of their actions, and develop more compassion in the way they treat others.

For millions ofᅠyoung people, bullying, violence, and other forms of oppression are a part of a typical school day. Many students are afraid to walk down the halls for fear of being teased or humiliated. Others feel so alone and frightened that they cannot even pay attention in their classes.

Younity is the vehicle for bringing bully-prevention programs and workshops to Central Oregon schools, providing administrative support and funding to make the programs a reality.  Younity’s vision is to bring these and other youth-centric program to Central Oregon and beyond.

To date, Younity has directly impacted over 6000 teens and 1900 adult volunteers in 65 programs and workshops in 16 middle and high schools in Central Oregon since January 2009.
