UNICEF Aotearoa’s Young Ambassador Programme

UNICEF Aotearoa’s Young Ambassador Programme is all about creating a platform to amplify your influence on the issues that matter to you. Here and around the world.

They want to help create an accessible and meaningful way for young people to champion their internationally recognised rights here in Aotearoa. There’ll be opportunities to engage in advocacy activities across the country and around the world as part of our global whānau.

Each year we support up to eight Young Ambassadors aged 17-24 across the country, to build their confidence in speaking up for what’s important to the next generation. You’ll travel across New Zealand to meet and understand what matters most to other rangatahi while representing your individual communities and cultures. As part of the programme, you’ll also receive specialist training and tons of support in wider youth engagement. Supported by UNICEF Aotearoa, you’ll then be able to raise the important issues with the key decision-makers. 


  • You’ll be given opportunities to talk and meet with ministers at Parliament to raise those big issues and champion the voice and dreams of rangatahi in Aotearoa.
  • You’ll get specialist training to become an effective advocate and lobbyist, understanding how to navigate the NZ Government and political system, and enact real change for young people.
  • As an ambassador, you’ll have the opportunity to meet the big decision-makers, business leaders, politicians and other young people working within the national and global youth sector.
  • You’ll receive media training to become an awesome spokesperson and engage with media (journalists, radio, TV, online). All travel costs will be covered whenever you’re on the move as part of your role.
  • All  travel costs will be covered whenever you’re on the move as part of your role.
