The NSW Schools Program

Take advantage of a high-quality educational experience crafted specifically for your needs! If you’re a primary or high school teacher or a tertiary educator, we want to hear from you! UN Youth runs 1 hour to day-long sessions, tailored to your requirements.

please read the Schools program Information Pack for all the details!

If you would like UN Youth to come to your school, why not host a school visit?

In addition to our annual events like State Conference, UN Youth NSW conducts school visits to provide an enriching educational experience for students that can complement the New South Wales curriculum from many different angles, whether that be human geography, legal studies or history, just to name a few.

Our school visits are designed specifically to meet your educational needs and to cover the topics you want us to cover, whether that be human rights, peace and conflict, civic participation, justice, The United Nations (introductory or detailed), current world issues, economics, sustainable development, or something else. Suitable for groups of all sizes, the structure of our school visits are unique and flexible and can be developed to meet the individual needs of your school and your students. Recurring or multi-day school visits as well as inter-school visits can be arranged.

In addition to workshops, our school visits can be designed to accommodate Model United Nations Debating, Interactive Problem Solving and other activities, so that students can experience the full suite of dynamic programs that UN Youth has to offer.

Our school visits are run by UN Youth Australia facilitators. UN Youth Australia facilitators are peer-to-peer educators, each of whom has received extensive facilitation training.  We believe each young person has the potential to understand and exercise their civic rights on a local, national and global level and demonstrate this through our programs. We value informal education, giving students a different style of learning based on interactivity and understanding to supplement their knowledge.

Please contact the NSW Director of Education, Audrey Velasco, at nsweducation@unyouth.org.au for more information regarding the NSW Schools Program or to book a UN Youth NSW school visit at your school.
