Entrepreneurship Program

Started in 2006, our entrepreneurship program drives the economical and social progress of residents in underserved communities by teaching youth and young adults to become business oriented. Participants of the program learned of business strategies from current events, expert advice, and from small business owners. These emerging entrepreneurs learned how to gauge if their idea is feasible, develop a business plan, build a brand, market their product/service, identify capital and etc.

Currently, UNIFI is gearing up for 2014's entrepreneurship program in Baltimore, MD. UNIFI will promote economic vitality for the under-served and under-valued Penn-North/Druid Heights community through the provision of technical assistance and accommodations for small and disadvantaged businesses at our location at 1378 West North Avenue. These activities will further our vision to ameliorate health disparities in the Penn-North community through the elimination of unsafe and hazardous conditions while also decreasing economic inequalities and enhancing the aesthetic value of the community in relation to the city.

Population(s) Served

Started in 2005, our program highlights the talent of youth in the arts: fine, digital and performing, also to include fashion design. UNIFI matches their talent with skills through the provisions of mentors, finances and other opportunities to propel them in the facet of entertainment that they have chosen to pursue.

This program soon expanded to introduce and acclimate youth in the various facets of video/film production, i.e. producing, directing, studio and field filming, editing, script writing and hosting. UNIFI promoted youth within this program to produce positive stories, news and events that will entertain as well as to educate their viewers.

Population(s) Served

Started in 2006, our medical program affords youth and young adults the opportunity of shadowing physicians and nurses providing medical care and supplies, and conducting HIV/AIDS, nutrition and and other health and wellness workshops for individuals and families in need.

Since UNIFI has hosted health and HIV/AIDS awareness events such as school tours and concerts to encourage healthy interpersonal and intrapersonal relationships. Our events featured performances by supporting artists Janelle Monáe, Scar, Keisha Lu, Glenn Lewis and Jon B.

Currently UNIFI is gearing up for 2013's medical program to provide nutritional and medical assistance for our international outreach in Nigeria and Nicaragua.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

On a daily basis these individuals face severe hunger, high crime, limited health care, recreation and employment options in an unsafe and dismal environment. Along with this impoverishment and despair comes the apathy and neglect in their surroundings that stifle a progressive quality of life.

UNIFI is making great strides to tackle threats in education, financial stability, social responsibility, and developmental opportunities for disadvantaged individuals. While moving toward our goal of providing an increased quality of life for Penn-North residents by empowering residents through regaining a sense of personal well-being, rebuilding their family structures, reconstructing blighted properties and reclaiming their community, and will continue to do so with your help!
