This program really made a difference in my life. Your kids learn so much like what their rights are if they are stopped by police, how to manage money, how to eat healthier, and how to make their own cleaning supplies. They visit colleges, go on field trips, learn about their history and get help with their homework! Free tutoring and they do community service as well. Joanne Dixon, parent of UUNIK male participant
At first, I was hesitant about attending the meeting, but as the meeting started I loved it! Mr. Reggie Jenkins opened a new view in my eyes for “black is beautiful.” I saw myself, and my brothers and sisters of my community as beautiful masterpieces.

I like UUNIK Academy because you get to meet different people, tell them some of the things you know and learn something from them as well. UUNIK Academy has taught me discipline and how to respect my elders. I have grown a lot while in UUNIK Academy. Roy Moore, 12.
