Be the voice of young Australians at the United Nations

Did you know in 2014 there will be 3 million young Australians? We reckon each and every one of them will have something to say.

The United Nations (UN) Youth Australia is currently fielding applications for the position of Australia's Youth Representative to the UN in 2014.

The Youth Representative is the only role of its kind in Australia. The Australian Youth Representative to the UN is a role appointed annually by UN Youth Australia in partnership with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. Running since 1999, the Youth Representative holds an extensive, nationwide consultation tour to engage with and discover the issues that are most important to young Australians. In September/October, the Youth Rep travels to New York to represent Australian youth at the United Nations, as a member of the Official Australian Delegation.

If this sounds like a role for you and you’re passionate to become the voice of young Australians, then apply today to become Australian’s next youth representative in the UN.

Application deadline 1 October 2013.

To apply and for further information visit www.youthrep.org.au.
