Welcome to UNYA!

Founded in 1988, the Urban Native Youth Association (UNYA) delivers 21 programs to over 6,500 urban Indigenous youth in Vancouver each year.  Together with our 175+ volunteers, 100 staff and more than 300 community partners, we're training the leaders of tomorrow by helping Vancouver's Indigenous youth explore their personal goals and develop thier leadership skills in a fun, safe and healthy environment.
