UNYA welcomes both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal volunteers as we understand that youth need the support of those who are willing and qualified to support them, regardless of their cultural identity.
It is great experience to add to your resume
- We gladly supply letters of reference for those who have volunteered a minimum amount of time (depending on the program)
- It is a great way to support the fastest growing demographic in the country. Almost 60% of the entire Native community is under the age of 25 and living in large urban settings.
- Research has shown that very few people volunteer at Aboriginal organizations compared to non-Aboriginal organizations
Additional individual program volunteer opportunities can be found on their individual program pages.
