Invest in Native Youth by donating $45 in celebration of 45 years of UNITY youth leadership development. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, during the pandemic UNITY continued to provide support to Native youth with complimentary registrations, waiving Membership dues, free virtual trainings and fun youth to youth connections. On Arizona Gives Day this April, we ask you to help us reach our goal to raise $10,000 by giving just $45 to continue our legacy for years to come. All funds raised will go directly to youth programs to directly benefit Native youth.
