2020 Junior Leadership Weekend has unfortunately been cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the subsequent restrictions on indoor gatherings.
We are very disappointed that Junior Leadership Weekend will not be going ahead in 2020 and apologise to those that would have otherwise attended. UN Youth NSW hopes to run Junior Leadership Weekend again in 2021.

Are you in Years 7 – 8 and passionate about making change in your community? Come to Junior Leadership Weekend 2021!
In September 2021, more than 100 students from across NSW will come together to take part in Junior Leadership Weekend. You will learn about leadership, diplomacy and advocacy in the context of a yet to be revealed theme of international importance. You will form connections and friendships with a diverse array of students and work with them to deliver change in your local communities, and beyond.
Junior Leadership Weekend is a two day and one night residential conference. Delegates will participate in thematic workshops based around a set theme, and will enhance their communication, advocacy and leadership skills through structured skills workshops. Assisting the development of these skills will be influential and inspiring guest speakers, who will share their wisdom with you. By the end of the weekend, delegates will come home with an insightful understanding into the pre-set topic and will be more confident in their ability to create meaingful social change in their local communities, and eventually in the broader world. Delegates will also have a whole lot of fun with activities such as trivia and a disco, and will make lots of new friends.
Join us at JLW 2021, so that you can better understand the social and political debates going on around you locally, nationally and internationally. We would love to have you along to actively participate in contributing your own informed beliefs and ideas!
