UNITE explores ideas of identity, integration and diversity with youth living in South Africa
The essential component to the UNITE programme is its weekly visits to its 4 partner school – Heideveld, Sea Point, Vista and Zonnebloem. These on-site visits allow UNITE to take a hands on approach with their students and hence ensure, that the three most significant aspects of UNITE are met:
- By exploring the theme of identity, youth heighten their awareness of the self and the self within society to better understand the way personal believes shape thought and action.
- By exploring the theme of integration, youth understand the constructs that keep different social groups separate and use this understanding to build bridges across social divides.
- By exploring the theme of diversity, UNITE fosters acceptance of differences between people to grow social cohesion and embrace individuality.
