2018 UNITY 25 Under 25 Applications Opens December 1
Mark your calendars! UNITY will begin accepting applications on December 1, 2017, for its 3rd class of “25 Under 25 Native Youth Leadership Awards,” a youth leadership recognition program. The awards program is designed to celebrate the achievements of Native American and Alaskan Native youth ages 14 to 24 who embody UNITY’s core mission and exude living a balanced life developing their spiritual, mental, physical and social well-being.
Honorees will be recognized at a ceremony during the National UNITY Conference, which takes place July 5 – 9, 2018 in San Diego, California at the Town and Country Resort and Convention Center. In addition to being recognized and receiving a beaded medallion, each awardee will receive special training by UNITY during a nine-month period that is designed to build on their individual achievements and promote community service.
The 25 Under 25 Native Youth Leadership Awards has been made possible in past years thanks to a matching grant from the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community. The awards program began in 2014 and is awarded every other year. Look for the 25 Under 25 online application form on December 1 at www.unityinc.org.
