The wait is over!! UYM is pleased to announce that we will be hosting the 21st Unstoppable You Conference at Faith Bible Church (located in Mechanicsville, MD) on Saturday, June 12, 2021 in a hybrid format. Yes that's right! Whether you are near or far, you can experience this life changing event in-person or virtually. This conference is appropriate for 12 y/o to adults. We are grateful to have the amazing vocals of Angela Braden, evangelical dance of Yvette Jones and Different Wings Ministry, phenomenal presentations by Lenny Lewis (Youth Empowerment), Candace Burke-Parrott (Human Trafficking Awareness), Tom and Michelle Weaver (Marriage Enrichment), Wyomme Pariss (Domestic Violence Awareness), William Tucker (Spiritual Empowerment), and LaTasha and Cameron Briscoe (Youth Entrepreneurship). In order to serve our virtual audience with the best experience ever, we are blessed to have Shanna Kabatznick as our virtual host and Amy Garelick of Pop Up Video and Virtual Events to handle the virtual production. But wait there's more! We definitely can't forget about the Unstoppable You Makeover. We have partnered with the Angel Watch Shelter to select a few of their clients for a head to toe makeover. All of this is possible because of the compassion of makeup artist Kiuana Henderson, wardrobe stylist Patricia Medley-Gibson, and hairstylist Cheritty Warren. Finally, we will have wonderful local vendors showcasing their goods and services. To learn more and register for your early bird tickets by May 1st, visit: https://uycsomd2021.eventbrite.com
Did You Know?
April is Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month. The ribbon color is teal. Justice.gov defines sexual assault as any nonconsensual sexual act proscribed by Federal, tribal, or State law, including when the victim lacks capacity to consent. According to RAINN (Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network), every 73 seconds, an American is sexually assaulted. Also, women ages 18-24 are at an elevated risk of sexual violence than any other crime especially on college campuses. Additionally, 13% of all students experience rape or sexual assault through physical force, violence, or incapacitation (among all graduate and undergraduate students).
