UNITY Events – UNITY, Inc.

Become a UNITY Member for FREE in 2020!

The National UNITY Council (NUC) Executive Committee first suggested the idea of waiving affiliation fees as a way to be more inclusive and assist those who have been impacted by the pandemic. UNITY acted on the recommendation and is excited to waive this year’s affiliation fees for youth councils and individuals in hopes to reach even more Native youth through the upcoming virtual events. Those who have already paid their membership dues will automatically be in “Good Standing” through July 1, 2022.

Youth Councils and Individual Members may join the UNITY Network for free when completing an Annual Report before June 15, 2020.
