Urban Native Youth Association (UNYA) has been supporting the health and wellbeing of Indigenous youth in the Metro Vancouver area for over 30 years. As a respected non-profit, charitable organization, we recognize Indigenous youth as experts in their own lives, and strive to provide youth with programs and opportunities that are relevant and meaningful to them.
UNYA's Aboriginal Youth Safehouse is a short-term live-in resource for 7 youth ages 16-18 who are in need of safe housing and support services. Our program is trauma-informed and grounded in the philosophies of harm reduction and person centered care.

Do you have a strong spirit of collaboration, dependability, positivity, and a love of what you do? Believe in open and positive communication with everyone? Do you want to give back to the community by being a positive role model for youth?
If you said yes, then this is the opportunity for you!

Taking care of people is our priority, and this includes our staff. Together, we strive to create an accepting, respectful, and non-judgmental work environment.
Having a self-care plan in place is important to your wellbeing, both personally and professionally, and we have a number of supports in place to help our staff with this. Full-time staff have access to our Employee Assistance Program, including counselling services. Our Elder in Residence has set hours every week to meet with staff for personal, cultural, and spiritual support.
