WHAT IS UN YOUTH?
We are a non-profit organisation that provides civics education outside of a traditional classroom context. Through fun workshops and conferences, we engage youth in the most pressing affairs of their country and the international community. Our goal is to inspire young New Zealanders to be active, global citizens. Global citizenship exists in an incredibly diverse range of forms, and UN Youth provides opportunities for delegates to develop their own form of active citizenship. Throughout Aotearoa, our work equips young people to become informed, engaged, and critical New Zealanders who understand their global context and the connections between the local and the global. Annually, over 3000 young New Zealanders attend UN Youth events, run by a body of 150 volunteers across the country who dedicate many hours of their time to engaging young people and growing the organisation.
WHAT IS AYD?
Aotearoa Youth Declaration is one of UN Youth’s flagship conferences. Participants aged 13-18 (Years 9-13) from all over Aotearoa come together to write the Youth Declaration, a document which represents a youth perspective on public policy. During the conference, participants work in targeted Rōpū (committee groups) to create policy solutions on a broad range of problems. Each Rōpū examines issues in Aotearoa and then contributes a solution to the issue, and these solutions comprise the Aotearoa Youth Declaration document. The Aotearoa Youth Declaration document is passed on to decision-makers (MPs, local Councils and Boards, and influential people) to help them decide the future of Aotearoa.
Please note: volunteering is only open to high school leavers aged 25 or under.
As a volunteer, you will attend a short compulsory training hui on April 20th 2022, and then continue with the conference from April 21-24 2022.
There is no fee for volunteering.
