About the Program

The School Ambassadors Program (SAP) is an initiative of UN Youth QLD dedicated to providing young people with a greater awareness of current international issues, and equipping them with essential leadership and life skills. It is open to students from Years 9-12. The program takes pride in being the largest year-long program, and the first SAP program within UN Youth Australia.

The School Ambassadors Program involves monthly sessions where participants gather to discuss and debate issues of global importance. The sessions range from workshops, tp interactive problem solving to model UN debates.

SAP endeavours to explore issues in fun, original and engaging ways, which will leave you questioning the ways that you perceive the world that we live in. Whether you have participated in UN Youth events before, or are entirely new to the organization – SAP is a great way to become better acquainted with the other amazing opportunities offered by UN Youth QLD.
