Getting the Right Attention: Developing a Communications Plan for Your Youth Initiative or Youth Council
November 19, 2015 – Mesa, AZ – On Thursday, December 3, 2015, from 6 to 7 p.m. ET, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) will host “Getting the Right Attention: Developing a Communications Plan for Your Youth Initiative or Youth Council,” a webinar presented by UNITY: Today’s Native Leaders.
Youth projects or youth planned events don’t always get a lot of publicity. Many times it’s because youth or youth advisors don't have an effective Communications Plan. This webinar will provide simple tips and tools so youth and youth advisors can effectively market and promote their activities and secure positive media attention.

UNITY youth leaders, including National UNITY Council Co-Presidents Sassamin Weeden and Brian Weeden (Mashpee Wampanoag), and National UNITY Council Vice President/Great Plains Representative Alex Greybull (Ft. Peck Dakota), participated in President Obama's 7th annual gathering of Tribal leadership from across the nation, held November 5, 2015 at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center Amphitheater in Washington, DC.
"This past week I was given the distinct opportunity to attend, alongside Tribal leaders and fellow youth, the annual White House Tribal Nations Conference hosted by the Obama Administration," said Sassamin Weeden. "Knowing we have support from such important people like President Obama and the Secretary of Interior, Sally Jewell, I left with a great feeling because of the passion they expressed with regards to Indian country, but mainly for concern and efforts to support our Native youth. They are so well invested in the future of our people that they recognize it starts today, with us, the next seven generations," added Weeden.
