Apply to help organise the Global Development Tour in 2020! UN Youth is looking for three Assistant Directors to lead a delegation of 22 of our country’s most passionate High School Students on an amazing educational opportunity consisting of meetings, visits and tours with a variety of UN bodies, NGOs, and government agencies across Europe and New York.

In 2019 the Delegation travelled to New York, London, Paris, Berlin, Vienna and Rome! During this amazing time together they learnt about international affairs and development initiatives. During New York, the delegates attended the prestigious Columbia Model United Nations and Exposition. Elsewhere they met with a range of diplomats, NGOs, and UN agencies who are involved with the Sustainable Development Goals – think Under-Secretary-General Jan Beagle in New York, Chatham House in London, and UNESCO in Paris (with many, many more!).

Being a part of the Global Development Tour Directorship will be a unique experience as well as an amazing development opportunity. If you have the skills we are looking for, we highly encourage you to apply! More specifically, below are five key reasons why you should apply:

Through this involvement with UN Youth, you will gain skills and experience that will benefit you no matter what your course of study is or future career goals are. It will be a significant boost to your CV and you will gain a lot from the expertise of other Volunteers you will work with.

The friends and social networks that Volunteers gain by being a part of UN Youth are a big part of what brings many people back. This role is a great opportunity to meet new, like-minded people or otherwise continue working with some of the incredible people you already know!

A role such as this will be a great deal of work, but it can also be fun! You will have the opportunity to undertake subsidised travel overseas, work with awesome people and form memories for a lifetime.

If you have participated in UN Youth events in the past, you will know just how educational and transformative they can be. This role is a fantastic way to give back to the organisation and contribute to the wider community through direct youth development.

Organising an international delegation is no small task. This role is really something that is significant and special – perfect for someone looking to extend or challenge themselves.
