Joshuah Yeend

Australian Capital Territory · Education Director

Meet our Education Director, Josh! A second year political science and public policy kid at the ANU, he has a pendant for random bouts of writing and an intense love for UNYA facilitation. Lately, his job has been to organise school visits, Youth Representative consultations, and improve on the plethora of stellar educational content in the organisation’s repertoire.

First getting involved in UN Youth as a delegate in South Australia some years back, he’s remained fiercely loyal to the state he calls home: becoming bit of an iced coffee addict, and the definitive habitual mingle-r. His facilitation journey across divisions, however, has helped solidify a place in his heart for the nation’s capital, and has had him facilitating at Conference, Voice, Evatt, and everything in-between – including his all-time favourite event, the day summit!

In what free time he does have, Josh loves to spend a great deal of it napping, going on spontaneous Ikea trips, and wasting an egregious amount waiting for his UberEats driver. Of course, company is always welcome!


Rates: Macca’s Mocha Frappuccinos, copious amounts of popcorn, and the “Pineapple Incident” episode from How I Met Your Mother.

Hates: when the frozen drink machine isn’t working, humans who hate hummus, and philosophy (because it’s objectively fake).
