We had the pleasure of working with The Yunion (pronounced union) who is a faith based youth serving non profit organization.
There mission is to counter negative cultural influences that misdirect the lives of youth and young adults by raising awareness and building character through innovative and relevant youth programming, mentoring and ministry. Here's a preview of one of the many programs they have... "Keys 2 life"
The Yunion was founded by current President and CEO Jason Wilson. In 2003 God gave him the vision to unite gifted and talented Christians nationwide; those determined to be salt and light to the youth and young adults who struggle with issues of identity and morality within the culture eroding right before our very eyes. As a former member of the legendary Detroit based rap group Kaos & Mystro, Mr. Wilson has seen and experienced firsthand hip hop music’s negative influence and persuasive power. The Yuinon originally started as a record label producing music that countered the potentially deadly influence of the hip-hop culture. However the mission soon changed when they realized that after the music stopped, the negative pressures continued for the population of youth we were called to reach.
In 2005, Mr. Wilson pursued establishing the Yunion as a 501c3 faith based non-profit organization, in order to gain access to funding needed to expand our services. In 2007 we were awarded our first Federal grant for mentoring through the U.S. Department of Education. Today the Yuinon has reached over 7500 Metro Detroit youth via intensive and innovative programming, engaging workshops, assemblies and conferences. It has truly been a pleasure to work with them in accomplishing their goal of reaching today's youth
