UNICEF USA National Youth Council Volunteer Program 2024-2025 (Fully-funded and open to all USA residents)

The UNICEF USA National Youth Council Volunteer Program is a group of young leaders ages 14-24 who work closely with UNICEF staff, to elevate the voices and perspectives of young people and advance child rights at a national capacity.

In this role, members support the club and volunteer network, advocate for policy change, and bring youth voices into spaces where they are typically excluded. The Council also works internally with staff and leadership to bring youth voice to UUSA’s culture, strategy and operations.

Key Responsibility of National Youth Council Volunteer

  •  ELEVATE YOUTH VOICE: Council Members are called upon throughout the year to represent UNICEF USA and elevate youth voices and perspectives by speaking at events and meetings locally and nationally. They also create social content for UUSA’s social media channels.
  • SUPPORT YOUTH & VOLUNTEER PROGRAMS: Council members provide feedback and insight on current trends in engaging young people in social justice work. Partnering with staff and UUSA leadership, Council members will inform strategic initiatives and campaigns.
  • EDUCATE AND MOTIVATE: Lead issue-specific projects to educate and inform youth, volunteers and staff on topics important to young people and UNICEF’s work. Amplify youth voice through media and write thought pieces on issues relevant to youth.
  • BUILD COMMUNITY: build relationships with each other, our Youth Representatives, UNICEF Clubs, support the management of the Slack community, and host digital conversations with students.
