PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING BEFORE COMPLETING AND SUBMITTING THE SURVEY

Note that this survey is specifically for Native youth between the ages of 18 and 24. Therefore, please respond appropriately to the age related questions within the survey.

If you are at least 18 years old, please indicate (by checking the appropriate button where provided) whether or not you give permission to a reporter from The Huffington Post to get in contact and conduct a follow up interview. Keep in mind that not all of those who grant permission will be contacted.

If you are 18 years of age or older at the time you submit the survey and you give your permission to be contacted, please provide the personal information requested on the survey form.

The submitted surveys will be maintained by UNITY. With the exception of your personal information, the content of the survey that you submit will be shared with the reporter.

After reviewing the collected surveys, the reporter will list those selected for a follow up interview and request the relevant contact information from UNITY. UNITY staff will then directly get in touch with those identified and ask for permission to share their contact information with the reporter. Upon receiving the information, the reporter will get in contact and make arrangements with those to be interviewed.
