Volunteers in Youth & Family Ministry (Y+FM)

As the Youth and Family Ministry of Unity Minneapolis, we cultivate the spiritual growth and transformation of all families: nuclear, extended, spiritual, and global. To experience our total connectedness, we have created opportunities that nurture the spiritual illumination of all
ages—wee ones to wise ones. We embrace the child in every adult and the adult in every child. We serve all forms of family. Through activities and experiences for children and adults, we bond, have fun, and recognize and celebrate the Truth of one another. With an exceptional educational curriculum and powerful youth programs, we inspire the spiritual growth of children of all ages. No Inner Child Left Behind.
