Advisor of the Year is named in honor of JR Cook
Effective and successful youth councils consistently have one key ingredient in common; an advisor who is involved, provides wise counsel and guidance, and is willing to work closely with youth council members as they make and carry out their decisions and related activities.
UNITY values the dedication of these many individuals who provide adult leadership and nurture and support the development of Native youth. In appreciation, UNITY will honor one such advisor this year during the 2020 National UNITY Virtual Conference. The honoree will be recognized during the UNITY Awards Ceremony on Tuesday, July 23, 2020
Please note, only online submissions are accepted at this time. Application deadline is on July 9, 2020.
