Youth Assemby at the United Nations

The National Society of High School Scholars is pleased to continue its partnership with Friendship Ambassadors Foundation, which will provide NSHSS members with special discounts for both conference-only and event package options to attend the 2016 Winter Youth Assembly at the United Nations on February 17-18, 2016, in New York City. Members who choose to apply with an event package are eligible to win a $1,000-2,000 scholarship at the end of the conference.

The Annual Youth Assembly at the United Nations is a unique platform created by Friendship Ambassadors Foundation to foster dialogue and generate partnerships between exceptional youth, UN high officials and staff, private sector, and civil society. Its mission is to empower youth to become active participants in the successful implementation of the newly adopted development agenda for 2030–the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or Global Goals.

With more than 500 young delegates from around the world attending the event twice a year, the Youth Assembly at the United Nations is the oldest and largest youth gathering on the UN’s annual calendar since 2002. Youth delegates from all over the world develop a deeper understanding of the various practices and perspectives in international development through meaningful exchanges with key players from various sectors.

As the world embarks on a new set of development goals for the next fifteen years, today’s youth is at a crucial moment in history to help turn the SDGs into reality. On February 17 and 18, youth delegates will examine the role of youth leadership and young professionals in the implementation of these global goals.

Deadline to apply: January 15th
