About the Unity Project

The Unity Project is a program that operates in Charlotte in partnership with Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools. A group of 12 students from each Unity school is chosen to represent the diversity of their community. They then embark on an all paid for wilderness expedition in the Blue Ridge Mountains, NC ,designed to assert their common humanity, to develop their courage and compassion as leaders, to establish a democratic forum within which to discuss challenging issues and to create a model community within their crew. Upon returning home, the group forms a Unity Club to organize and implement projects addressing issues that affect their community.
