UNITY is experiencing an exciting period of growth and development. These new developments increase the need and importance of not only continuing the tradition of involving the youth and their advisers in UNITY's planning efforts, but to also increase the number of participants so that the voices of Native youth from throughout the nation are heard and considered as we develop and plan the programs that will will best meet the needs of the youth UNITY serves. We look forward to welcoming the youth and advisers to a new meeting facility and the opportunity to work with them in preparation for the new opportunities ahead.
