So, if you are reading this, I am 100% sure you have already gone through some of our podcasts, blog posts, event write ups and perhaps even scrolled our Instagram page: @youthnitednations . And you probably saw that we are looking for motivated and inspired youth to join our Youthnited Nations Board of Directors!
So now you are wondering... what does it entail?
Why should I join?
ECOSOC Chambers, United Nations
Who are we looking for?
We are looking for motivated and inspired youth who are looking to make a difference in whatever shape or form. You don't need to know what "making a difference" looks like- this will come with experience.
Individuals who have passion in any area- this is the most beautiful part of working towards the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. There are 17 of them- they are widespread- they touch on every aspect of life. Therefore, if you are interested in making a difference in an area, this will be a great platform of support for you!
Individuals with different talents to make a well balanced team which may include: leadership skills, communication skills, work ethic, excitement, past experience on a board (although this is not necessary), innovative ideas, organized - to name a few.
Individuals who are looking to contribute to something- this contribution "amount" or the time you want to put into Youthnited Nations will be determined by the Board once the Board is elected. Teamwork makes the Dreamwork- so we will have a discussion on what expectations for time commitment will look like for everyone once we come together. In essence, this will be as much or as little as you want. Everything counts!
Individuals looking to build partnerships with the community and relationships with others through Youthnited Nations, while working towards major goals such as obtaining status with the United Nations.
