The Unity Project (UP) is a non-profit, school-based bias and harassment prevention program focused on Maine middle and high schools. The mission of UP is to build strong leadership among young people and adults to prevent harassment and create safe schools.
The Unity Project believes that young people’s leadership is key to preventing and responding to school-based bias and harassment. During adolescence, peer influence is of paramount importance: so why not use that influence to create safe schools? UP has been doing just that since 2002, with powerful results.
