Urban Native Youth Organization

Urban Native Youth Organization is excited to be starting our series of Sunday Elder Dinner's. UNYO youth leaders will be creating and serving nutritious meals for the elders of our community. These meals will feature a guest chef that will collaborate with the youth to offer a new flare to some of our traditional foods. Along with the meals there will be entertainment like games, stories, movies, music, crafts.


Along with our meals we will be partnering with Spectrum Center of Spokane to bring clinics that will offer information about Covid-19, flu shots, vaccinations for covid and other diseases/viruses. Our youth are committed to taking care of their community and with these Dinners and Clinics. UNYO is excited to do just that. So, Welcome all and hope to see you there. Please RSVP if you would like to reserve a spot to join us or help out.
