The UNITE Club at Pleasant Valley High School takes on a tough mission: getting high school students to be nice to each other. There have been dozens of movies, books, and tv shows that feature the cliques and social system of a high school. It’s hard to get away from the stereotypes, but that’s exactly what UNITE Club hopes will happen. A group of about 20 students meet once week to figure out how to make the school as inclusive as possible. Each month, they address a different group of students with the hopes of getting all students to understand each other a bit better. They produce a video and ask students to wear a ribbon in support of each group. Right now, they’re working on a video about Religious Inclusion. We’ve included the videos they’ve produced already this year below.
