Volunteering Opportunities

 

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. 

Why volunteer at UNYA?
  • 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
Current volunteer opportunities include:
Volunteer Mentors - Mentorship Program
Volunteer Mentors -Kinnections Program
 

Additional individual program volunteer opportunities can be found on their individual program pages.
