Gangs Unite CIC is a youth-focused social action group that aims to bring young people together along their common interests, and to help divert often violent energies toward self empowerment, social change, and unity.
We are building and nurturing the next generation of leaders through our innovative programs that nurture and develop the youth voice and promote positive social dialogue across boundaries of age, race, class, gender, culture, and sexual orientation. Throughout each facet of the organization, Gangs Unite encourages active literacy, honest self analysis, and critical thought.
The mission of Gangs Unite is to realize the potential of inner-city youth to build healthier and safer communities and schools. Our programs are based on the belief that urban youth represent a valuable, untapped resource and can significantly contribute to the rejuvenation of communities and local institutions.
