Youth Camp: Korea


Youth Camp: Korea

WFUNA Youth Camp: Korea is an educational initiative launched to encourage greater global civic responsibility by involving participants in actionable extra-curricular programs aimed at helping impoverished youth in developing countries.

What is our goal?

The program aims to raise awareness of the objectives and related challenges of the United Nations by providing a 5-day camp that teaches elementary, middle and secondary school students about the United Nations and international relations in a creative and interactive setting.

The program aims to foster global leaders by training youth with simulative education tools such as Model UN. The camp will guide participants to apply these skillsets to build a better understanding of the United Nations system and global issues. 

Why do we want this?

The work of the United Nations reaches every corner of the globe and activities are guided by the three main pillars of peace and security, human rights and sustainable development, including the Sustainable Development Goals.

Awareness on a wide range of UN activities needs to be further expanded and it is vital that youth are given the tools and support to take on the related challenges in an independent and proactive way.


WFUNA Youth Camp: Korea provides youth participants with the adequate knowledge, skills and tools to engage in discussions on new challenges and opportunities and equips them to design projects advancing the debate on a sustainable development agenda. WFUNA has extensive experience providing trainings to students through activities on a large variety of UN-related issues, such as the UN human rights instruments and mechanisms, the SDSs or our Advanced Training at the UN program.

WFUNA Youth Camp: Korea adds practical and concrete value to the study programs of youth in Korea and prepares them for their potential careers in international affairs.

Who is this for?

150 - 250 youth (5th Grade – 12th Grade) enrolled in elementary, middle and high school/secondary schools
