Dateline April 6, 2015, Santa Barbara:

“United Youth” is the new outreach initiative being sponsored and launched by the Santa Barbara chapter of the United Nations Association. We feel that it is essential to empower our youth and listen to the ideas! Please stay tuned to this page as it begins to reflect more fully the engaging activities of this new youth-oriented outreach to our coming generations.

United Youth: A Festival Of Expression

The UNA-USA and 2020 A Year Without War invite all youth of Santa Barbara County to participate in outdoor, full day – our inaugural United Youth: A Festival of Expression, on Saturday, May 2.

The purpose of this event is to give our local youth (middle school through college) an unrivaled opportunity to be heard as they express their hopes and dreams, their fears and concerns, and most anything else they have on their minds. Art, Music, Dance, Impromptu talks and conversations will keep the discussions and participation lively. Come to listen. Come to be heard — to tell your stories, and get to know each other. You will meet more than 20 non-profit organizations offering mentorships and volunteer opportunities. This free event is being led by a new youth group called United Youth. It’s their turn to be heard and advance their ideas and concerns.

DATE: Saturday May 2, 2015 10:00am- 4pm outdoors
LOCATION: Santa Barbara City College West Campus-
Grand Meadow. This event is Free.

It’s an invitation to elevate our thinking and motivate young women and men to believe they can make a difference and experience their true potential as students and as adults. “We will all learn from the wisdom of our youth” says Dr. Gil Reyes, Event Coordinator.

Also there is an exciting opportunity to be part of creating the “World’s Largest Peace Collage.” Bring words or images that express how you feel about world peace, what you want our world leaders to know. Please visit our booth at Earth Day April 18 & 19, Alameda Park.
