Winter Youth Assembly at the United Nation

 

Save the Dates!

February 5-7, 2014  

Registration for the 

Winter Youth Assembly at the United Nations

(YA@UN) is now OPEN!

 

Register now to secure a spot at the oldest and the largest

youth leadership event on the United Nations’ calendar

 

In August, we had 1,250 strong applications from youth leaders representing 50 countries. However, the temporary General Assembly Hall (United Nations Headquarters, New York City) only accommodates 1100 people; we therefore evaluated the applications and sent official letters to support delegates’ visa applications on a first come, first served basis.  And, this winter, our largest space at the UN will only hold 500 delegates …

 

So register NOW!

This Winter, the YA@UN theme will be “Youth Employment and Social Entrepreneurship,” and take place on February 5 and 6, 2014, at United Nations Headquarters in New York City.  February 7 will feature a Day on Wall Street and the beginning of a new Hackathon for Development (more when the program is posted online in one week!)  A special, academic session and campus tour will take place on February 4; on February 8 and 9, an NYC networking weekend is available. Program and Accommodation info to follow.

Overview: Having reached 1.8 billion, youth now comprise almost 25% of the world population and the largest generation of youth that the world has ever known, facing unique challenges and opportunities. Two of these challenges are the rising unemployment rate and the difficulties that the educational systems face in adapting to the rapidly-changing job market.

 

“There is no longer time to teach youth how to write Resumes; it is high time to teach them how to write Business Plans!” 

the  

UN Secretary General’s Special Envoy on Youth, Ahmad Alhendawi, strongly advocates.

At the Winter Youth Assembly, we help attendees diversify their skill-sets and gain valuable insights, essential for their future career paths.

 

 

So register NOW!
