There are three broad categories of programs that we run in schools:

  • MODEL UN SESSIONS (INCLUDING OUR HIGHLY POPULAR EVATT IN SCHOOLS PROGRAM)
  • CONTENT BASED WORKSHOPS, INCLUDING TOPICS UNDER THE BROAD THEMES OF:
    • Advocacy
    • Australian Foreign Policy
    • Conflict and Intervention
    • Democracy, Power and Revolution
    • Economics, Trade and Globalisation
    • Human Rights
    • Poverty, Aid and Development
    • The UN and International Justice
  • INTERACTIVE PROBLEM SOLVING SESSIONS
    • This is where students get into groups which represent a particular cabinet
    • They are given a crisis scenario and a series of tasks to act upon through a diplomatic problem solving process

In addition to in-class sessions, UN Youth Victoria also runs Summits involving multiple schools. These summits centre on a single topic and involve expert guest speakers, intensive discussion led by UN Youth facilitators and lively debate. We hope to see you there.

Our Philosophy

We believe every young person has the responsibility to be a global citizen, engaged on a local, national and global level.

This is why we strive to open young eyes to the world through unique educational opportunities which deliver the skills and knowledge to contribute to the alleviation of global issues that affect their global, national and local community.

In this way we will create a generation of morally conscious young people who will take these values with them into the future as they become the leaders of our world.

Our programs firmly support the value of peer-to-peer and informal education, exposing the students to different learning techniques based on interactivity and understanding.

Our Facilitators

UN Youth Victoria facilitators are peer-to-peer educators, each of whom has received extensive facilitation training and are compliant with all state and federal child protection laws.

All our facilitators are of an exceptionally high calibre in their intellectual capacity and communication skills. Most are at university studying a wide range of courses including international relations, arts, science, law and commerce.

All our facilitators, organisers and content writers are under the age of 25 and are passionate about volunteering their time to educate, engage and empower young people.
