Council for Unity is a 501(c)(3) organization that offers customized curriculum, training, and technical assistance to schools, communities, police departments, and correctional facilities. Our program is designed to promote family, unity, self-esteem, empowerment, tolerance and achievement.
The CFU model, which teaches essential interpersonal and life skills such as leadership, self-expression, mediation, conflict resolution and advocacy, helps reduce and resolve personal conflicts, (gang) violence, bullying, and intolerance. Participants gain greater self-awareness, self-esteem, and social skills, as well as a greater understanding of, and appreciation for, diversity and community. Another positive outcome is greater academic and workplace success.
Technical assistance is also available through weekly on-site coordination by highly trained CFU staff who provide support and guidance for clients. Training for teachers and advisors is also provided to ensure that the maximum benefits of the Council’s curricula is realized. Sustaining these outcomes is insured because membership is for life. Participants receive mentoring from alumni and board members instilling in them a sense of hope and aspiration.
