Look Within and Be Radiant
Unity Atlanta Youth and Family Ministry
Family Ministry is dedicated to promoting life-long qualities that support a child’s spiritual and emotional development, as well as create a foundation for mindful living!
The focus each week is to remind our youth that God is within us, around us, and everywhere present… and that we are loved unconditionally.
The purpose of this ministry is to support parents seeking a practical approach to spiritual concepts and mindfulness for their children, as well as themselves.
The mission of Unity Atlanta’s Youth and Family Ministry is to provide our children with a safe, nurturing, loving sacred space, while learning and applying spiritual principles that can be used in everyday interactions. Teachings are presented from a practical view point that encourages one to expand their existing understanding of their own God experience.
Our teachings empower the youth to live to their Divine Potential.

This age group focuses on basic Unity principles and metaphysical teachings, including prayer, meditation, affirmations, biblical readings, uplifting songs and more. As part of the Sunday routine, the children assemble together for Sacred Circle time before they gather with their respective age group to engage in spiritual teachings, crafts and connection activities.
Uniteen (For Ages 11-13)
UNI-Teen is our middle school teen group for grades 6th-8th. They meet with their youth Sponsor each week to explore Unity principles, metaphysical teachings, biblical readings, and their own course of study based on Atlanta Unity’s approved guidelines. At this age level, youth attend weekend retreats and outings. They also have opportunities to serve the community and develop their spiritual leadership skills.
Youth Of Unity (Y.O.U.) (For Ages 14-18)
The Youth of Unity (YOU) is an international youth group. The purpose of YOU is for youth to begin demonstrating their Christ Light, as well as to encourage and nurture a teen’s spiritual growth. YOU puts the principles in to practice for those teens seeking to live their divine potential daily. YOU Sponsors encourage youth leadership, fortitude, deeper spiritually exploration and an acceptance of a God guided life experience. YOU participants attend local social outings and gatherings, plan and execute community outreach, develop fund raising plans. YOU teens have an opportunity to attend regional weekend retreats called Rally, lock-ins and trainings, spiritual leadership conferences, and International YOU held annually at Unity Village.
What is a region?
Each state belongs to one of the seven ministerial regions as defined by the Association of Unity Churches International (dba Unity Worldwide Ministries). Unity Atlanta YOU is in the Southeast Region. Each region hosts many events, or rallies, for its YOU groups. Regional representatives are elected yearly to plan the YOU experiences on a regional level. These events include rallies, leadership events, lock-ins, subregional activities, fundraisers and service projects.
What are rallies?
Rallies are weekend-long retreats that encourage fellowship as well as the sharing of ideas and experiences in the framework of Unity principles. ATL YOU hold fundraising events throughout the year to be able to attend the rallies and other regional events. To attend a rally, teens must be attending Y.O.U. and average of two Sundays a month and must meet service hours requirements. In support of the teens spiritual growth, the Church pays for 1/3 and the teens/parents pay for 2/3 of the rally and transportation fees. Rallies are youth led and are entertaining, spirit filled and full of love and acceptance. Teens and Sponsors alike all love attending and come back with a spiritual boost called “Rally Vibrational High”!
