About the event:
UN Youth Wellington is looking for five enthusiastic and adaptable tertiary students to coordinate 2022’s outreach events! Be part of a truly unique event committee and gain valuable coordinator experience.
Outreach MUNs take UN Youth to the far corners of the region, beyond central Wellington, to give our long distance delegates an event near them. Moreover, Outreach is a fantastic opportunity for the organisation to reach new students who otherwise would not have had the chance to participate and engage with all that we have to offer!
Each committee member will be responsible for their own regional event which they can shape from start to finish, while also working alongside four other coordinators. Volunteers will learn key skills like developing educational content, managing relationships, and general organisation. You are guaranteed professional development in a fun, dynamic environment surrounded by like-minded volunteers who could be your new best friend!
We have decided to open applications for the 2022 Outreach Committee despite the current alert level status. We have done this with the assumption that we will be able to run our outreach events in the second half of the year, and to ensure that the committee has the time they need to put together a great event without the additional stress of being on a tight timeline.
However, it is important to note that there is a possibility that the events may not be able to run due to the volatile nature of the pandemic. Furthermore, it is also possible that given the current circumstances, additional measures will have to be taken in the running of our events, which as a committee you will have to accommodate for. Please carefully consider these disclaimers before applying and make an informed decision.
Five coordinator positions for the following events: Wairarapa MUN, Taranaki MUN, Gisborne MUN, Hawke’s Bay MUN Junior and Senior (two events), Manawatu-Wanganui MUN.
