UN Youth Australia is a national youth-led non-profit organisation that aims to educate and empower young Australians on global issues. We educate over 7,000 young Australians each year across every state and territory, with a focus on conferences, competitions and international tours for secondary school students.
We also work in conjunction with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade on the Australian Youth Representative to the United Nations Program. We know that young leaders have the vision and passion to create meaningful change within their communities and throughout the world, and aim to equip them with the skills and inspiration to do so. Our activities are run for youth and by youth, and everything we do is aimed at empowering young people to be leaders on the world stage.
UN Youth Australia is run entirely by a team of over 700 extremely dedicated volunteers, all aged 16 to 25. We are one of the only organisations brave enough to empower young people with skills in education, in design, in leadership, in organisation, in diplomacy and in negotiation to execute their vision – and we couldn’t be happier with the result!
