YOUTH LEADER DAILY ACTIVITIES:
Every 3-5 years we take a group of youth leaders to Washington DC during Spring Break. This serves as an educational trip during which participants learn about American government, discover how to be responsible Christian citizens, and visit historic sites. Our next trip is scheduled for October 2018.
In March 2015, Unity Center Youth Leaders participated in Lobbying for Tuition Equality in Tennessee at the Capitol in Nashville.
We look forward to supporting our Youth Leaders in many such endeavors in the future.
