UNITY wishes to thank the 97 UNITY Youth Councils, 47 Advisors & 60 Individual Members who participated in the recent Accessibility Survey

Congratulations to the following 5 Raffle Winners,  who will receive a $100 Visa Gift Card. Participants sent in their survey feedback online, via text or by U.S. mail:

  • Toni Sandoval, Individual Member, The Klamath Tribes Youth Council, North West Region

    UNITY Inc. values youth feedback. During these difficult times of social distancing, we understand that it is hard to connect to our community. We appreciate all of the efforts that Advisors and Native youth serving organizations are doing to continue offering services remotely. UNITY youth evaluations have helped shape many decisions on how best to proceed with the upcoming 2020 Virtual Conference. Below are some findings from the recent UNITY survey, inquiring how best UNITY can serve the Native youth from afar.
Representation Matters. Here are the UNITY Regions that took part in the survey:
UNITY inquired about youth council accessibility through sending out surveys in the mail, creating a text survey option as well as sending the online survey to contacts.
After reviewing the results, UNITY will be offering a complimentary USB drives, with the Virtual Conference recorded trainings on them, to be mailed (upon request) to those who do not have access to the internet or a personal computer.

Overall, participants expressed their sadness about not being able to meet in person, but still supported UNITY’s efforts to reach youth remotely.   

After careful consideration, the UNITY Board of Trustees have postponed this year’s National UNITY Council Executive Committee Virtual Elections, at the request of the current 2020 Executive Committee. The Elections will occur during the next in person 2021 National Conference Business Meeting.
