Unity Club

The Unity Club promotes social unity and equality between students while providing a place for anyone to talk about experiences they have had. The Unity Club at Putnam has major cultural influence in a positive manner.

Unity consists of a group of youth interested in creating a healthy, encouraging, and all-embracing atmosphere! They work towards changing the environment to be inclusive and highlight the positive norms within the school and local community.  Unity Club has also incorporated the GSA club into it.


  • Unit Club goals are to create a safe space for students of all race, religion, sexual orientation, disability, etc. to address struggles and find support from peers that may understand what they are going through so that they can feel valued and supported here at school and within the community. Unity Club also aims to engage others, the student body, and the community through various service projects to support our goal.
