The role of an ambassador is to support UN Youth in achieving its vision to inspire students to have a positive impact on the world around them and to develop their skills to be able to make a difference.
As a representative of UN Youth, your responsibilities will be to establish a UN Youth club at school, promote our conferences such as by speaking in assemblies, organise in-school workshops and events and advocate for our values of engagement and tolerance.
At school, it will be important to develop and maintain positive relationships with relevant teachers who can support your work as an ambassador. At UN Youth events, it will be essential to employ the facilitative skills you will gain through attending our training sessions.
You will receive formal recognition for your involvement as an ambassador and be exposed to a wide range of opportunities. Through gaining experience in a professional capacity, you will develop widely applicable skills such as event management, leadership and interpersonal skills.
If you are passionate about inspiring global citizens, this is an invaluable opportunity where you can contribute to the vision of UN Youth while still participating as a delegate in regional and national conferences.
Being a UN Youth High School Ambassador (HSA) is a fantastic volunteering opportunity for year 11-13 students. As a UN Youth representative, High School Ambassadors can develop new skills while educating and inspiring other students.
Applications are due with a copy of your CV by 11:59PM, Friday 30th April 2021 to Na-Young Kim, the High School Ambassadors Programme Coordinator, at [email protected] Questions may also be directed to Na-Young.
