UN Youth Australia is a not-for-profit, youth-led organisation that aims to build the people’s movement for the United Nations through the education and empowerment of young Australians. We seek to provide young Australians with a global education, including knowledge of the social and political problems confronting the world and the skills needed to address them.   

We run a large range of international, national and local programs designed to provide this empowerment through education, with a focus on students aged 15 to 19. Within Australia, we organise State/Territory and National Conferences, Evatt (a national Model UN competition), and Voice (a junior public speaking competition). Internationally, we coordinate educational tours of Europe, the United States, the Middle East, East Timor, and New Zealand for secondary school students. We also work directly with the Australian Government to promote youth empowerment. In collaboration with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, we nominate an Australian Youth Representative to the United Nations General Assembly.
