Youth Assembly At The United Nations

Youth from around the world are invited to apply for this year’s Summer Youth Assembly at the United Nations, scheduled to be held in New York, USA on August 9 - 12. The conference will provide a platform for youth from around the world to learn and share practical knowledge and skills with experienced professionals and fellow attendees through dynamic panels and workshops. With most delegates coming from far-flung parts of the world, the Youth Assembly has proven to be an embodiment of unity and diversity on an international scale. The deadline for registration is June 15.
