Welcome to UNYA!

As Metro Vancouver's only Native youth program-providing organization, we work to empower Native youth through our 21 programs which include education & training, personal support, live-in programs, and sports & recreation. Each program works with different age groups, so please check our programs and activities pages or UNYA brochure for more info. To find other community resources, please see our links page. Our work also includes community development, training, research, educational materials, and advocacy. Our main goal is to provide opportunities that can help Native youth to reach their full potential and personal goals.
