ABOUT US

The United Youth-Adult Conference (UYAC) was founded in Atlanta, Georgia in 1972, by Arthur Langford Jr. and a group of college students from the Atlanta University Center. The focus of UYAC during this period was to improve the quality of life for youth and young adults by providing positive motivational opportunities to participate in main stream society. UYAC targeted 75% of its activities in public housing and low income areas while 25% of its efforts were devoted to college campuses focusing on leadership development. Over the years UYAC has successfully implemented many worthwhile projects including, voter registration projects, job training and placement, mentoring, and crime prevention.The United Youth-Adult Conference (UYAC) was founded in Atlanta, Georgia in 1972, by Arthur Langford Jr. and a group of college students from the Atlanta University Center.

 The Arthur Langford Jr. Teen Leadership Institute promises to be an exciting, enlightening and empowering program. The Institute is sponsored by the United Youth-Adult Conference II (U.Y.A.C.), an organization dedicated to improving and making a difference in the life of youth.


The late Arthur Langford Jr. was a devout community servant. He began his career in politics as the youngest member of the Atlanta City Council and later became a State Senator. Mr. Langford founded the United Youth-Adult Conference as a means to bridge youth with adults. The Arthur Langford Jr. Teen Leadership Institute will commence this summer to provide a forum for youth in inner city communities of Atlanta. The Institute will prepare our youth for leadership roles with emphasis on community service and civic responsibility.
