As a student in public education, you may be wondering, “Why do I only learn about European and American History in my classes? When are we going to study the achievements of Asia, Africa, and Latin America?” Well, UMCI strives to answer those questions, while also facilitating healthy dialogue between students about their interests in History. UMCI can also provide students with a historical education centered around their personal interests. We try to invite History students from your local college to provide panels and presentations on multi-cultural histories. Therefore, if you want to promote a particular topic in History for your community, UMCI would be the perfect club for you.
As a member, you will be invited to weekly/monthly meetings where you can engage in open, healthy discussions about interesting Historical topics. We can cover Africana Studies, Native American Histories, Asian History, and much more. Our topics are only limited by the interests of our members. After interest has been shown in a particular topic, UMCI will reach out to local College school students and invite them to provide a presentation on the topic for our club members. Lastly, as a member you can also host your own panel or presentation, which you can put on your resume for a College Application!

Unify My Community Incorporated (UMCI) is a non-profit organization that promotes a community where historical scholars can engage with themselves and with their fellow classmates. We care about promoting young scholars with a passion in history to engage in their personal interests. We also feel as though history is often overlooked in our education system, as well as in our communities and society in general. Therefore, we strive to educate young high schoolers in multi-cultural histories, ranging from Africana Studies and LatinX history to the Civil Rights Movement and the War on Terror.
