United National Indian Tribal Youth
Native youth looking to share ideas and network with other young people in their area are invited to join one of United National Indian Tribal Youth’s (UNITY) regional meet ups. At these meet-ups, youth councils gather to grow relationships and work toward goals.
“Members of the National UNITY Council Executive Committee are eager to meet with Native youth around the country,” said Program Manager LorenAsley Buford. “Young people have a unique perspective on the needs and challenges facing their communities, and this is an opportunity for them to come together to brainstorm ideas on how to address those issues. And to have some fun while doing so!”
