About Unity Charity

Based out of Toronto, Unity Charity is a national organization that provides Hip Hop programming that engages and inspires youth between the ages of 12-24 from underserved communities across Canada. Unity's work is embedded with creative and engaging practices supporting positive youth mental health. Unity supports creating an environment for youth to build their resilience to better face the day to day challenges that life brings. Using an arts-based approach that prioritizes mental wellness, Unity Charity utilizes relatable and accessible network of art forms (dance, beat box, spoken word and graffiti) that provides a healthy space for youth who feel disconnected from their community and/or overwhelmed by stress.
