Pacific Region

UNITY Regional Profile

The Pacific Region consists of geographical areas and the states of California and Hawaii. The Pacific region has 40 affiliated youth councils in 2 states within the UNITY Network.


At the meet-ups, youth councils are invited to gather to grow relationships and work towards goals. These MeetUps will serve as a networking opportunity as well as a brainstorming session for how to address community challenges and needs. (And have fun!) Not only will this be a valuable networking opportunity for your Youth leaders to connect with the surrounding tribes, but we would also like your feedback.
