Bullying: an act of repeated aggressive behavior in order to intentionally hurt another person, physically or mentally.
Bullying can happen anywhere. A cruel text message, being ignored or a physical harm can make you feel ignored and insignificant. At the Youth Unite you are valued! We want to hear your story and show you that YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
The Youth Unite reaches out to youth in the Stateline Area through music therapy programs and our visits to schools to present our Character Education Assembly. If you are a victim of bullying or other emotional trauma, we are here to let you know, YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

In 2015, The Youth Unite received a grant from Ecolab to begin our Music Therapy program and it has been an enormous success. The program has changed countless lives and this year we received another Ecolab grant to continue to offer Music Therapy to local youth who have been victims of trauma and abuse. Thank you Ecolab for your continued support of our community.

While in law school, The St. Thomas Law Review extended an invitation to Brittnay to compose a comment about a novel issue of law. Brittnay chose to write about the struggles of bullying victims in Florida and the limited relief offered to these victims by Florida courts. Brittnay will continue to lobby on behalf of victims of bullying as she uses her Juris Doctor to help those who need legal assistance.
