UNEA Mission

Engage all generations to serve and empower Native youth through education, culture and tradition.


Seattle Clear Sky Native Youth Council

SCSNYCis a youth centered, youth driven program of UNEA. Clear Sky originated in February of 2008 with a few Native youth initiating weekly gathering in response to the lack of cultural, social and academic support. Clear Sky and UNEA eventually merged as a natural evolution of parents, youth, educators, and community members coalescing together to strengthen their resolve to create successful grassroots organization with the clear purpose of serving Native youth. 

Clear Sky provides a number of resources, activities, educational and cultural opportunities not otherwise available or accessible to our urban Native youth. Clear Sky Native Youth Council Program has become a touchstone and a place of power for community building since its organic inception. Highlights of Clear Sky Program include: Leadership Council, Natives on the Rise Mentorship Project, Empowerment Workshops, Life Skills trainings, and our monthly Clear Sky Newsletters. Youth participants have opportunity to learn and grow specific skills sets and prepare for college, technology school and workforce through; civic and community service, stewardship, self- advocacy, and professional development. All programming and activities are designed for Native youth, Native youth voice, and with thoughtful attention to cultural relevancy and cultural responsiveness.
