Current Youth Representatives

The Spring 2017 Youth Representatives include thirty students, ranging from first-years to Ph.D. students, who are pursuing a wide range of majors. Youth Representatives visit the United Nations once per month where they attend briefings, conferences, and private meetings with UN officials on behalf of their NGO on topics such as the role of art in creating cultures of peace, the importance of global citizenship education to achieving the UN's sustainable development goals (SDGs), and economic development across Africa.

Additionally, Youth Representatives often have the opportunity to draw attention to their organization by taking on visible roles in UN briefings and conferences.
