Adult advisors and chaperones will also participate in team building and youth advocacy workshops. The agenda line up will make this UNITY Midyear conference one of the best! Register today at www.unityinc.org.

For more than 41 years the National UNITY Conference has brought Native Youth Leaders to cities across the United States to participate in a drug and alcohol-free setting. The youth-led four-day conference will have a packed agenda including motivational messages, team-building exercises, health and fitness activities, cultural exchange, workshops, luncheon, and a closing commitment ceremony.
