S2U Mission

In the wake of the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin shooting on August 5th, 2012, Serve 2 Unite emerged in a spirit of defiance. The hate behind the murders was met with an ongoing practice of fearless, creative, compassion. Rooted in the Sikh principle of service to others, and relentless optimism in the face of adversity, Serve 2 Unite today engages young people of all backgrounds to value humanity and the aspiration of living a genuine, honest life as a peacemaker.

Our program:

· Students craft their intentions into reality via the arts, with their projects published to share with the Earth in S2U Magazine.

· S2U Student chapters volunteer to help care for their communities and our planet.

· Global mentors from Against Violent Extremism and The Forgiveness Project connect with S2U Students via telepresence and social media to share inspirational experience and courageous wisdom.

· Interdependence is studied and practiced with collaboration between all.

Together we cultivate mindful compassion.

Together, we Serve 2 Unite.

Keynotes and Workshops

The experiences of a former violent extremist intertwined with those of a survivor of violent extremism reveal a very practical guide to cultivate a more peaceful life. Themes of kindness, courage, forgiveness, and personal responsibility are illuminated. Participants of this experience are challenged to explore their own narratives with open honesty, and engage with our common humanity, building a foundation for happiness and success. Learn More >>>
