Youth at the UN: National Youth Delegate Programme to the United Nations

In celebration of the International Year of Youth in 2010-2011, the World Federation of United Nations Associations (WFUNA), with generous support from the UN Population Fund (UNFPA), launched Youth at the UN: A Handbook for Establishing a National Youth Delegate Programme to the United Nations [PDF], in the hopes that youth and UNAs would use the handbook to lobby their governments to establish a National Youth Delegate Programme.

This free, downloadable Handbook guides young people through the process of developing a proposal and budget for a national Youth Delegate Programme under the guidance of their United Nations Association, as well as taking them step-by-step through creating their own campaign for such a Programme. This handbook includes a number of website and links, including some of the additional resources listed below.

If you have used the handbook in the past and would like to share your experience with WFUNA, please contact us.

Our ultimate goal: significantly increased youth participation at the United Nations.
