The environmental stewardship program which was started in the 1990s, engages Native American and Alaska Native youth in training sessions and informational workshops to increase their knowledge of environmental issues affecting Native America, learn to serve as ambassadors to increase awareness of the issues affecting the environmental quality of Native lands, and promote efforts to address environmental concerns within the nation’s Native communities.
Native youth must be between the ages of 14-24 years old. Prior involvement in UNITY is not required.
