About the event and roles:
UN Youth is looking for committed tertiary students to take on a key role in organising one of
Wellington’s main events for secondary school students in 2019: Westminster Model Parliament.
Now in its second year, Westminster Model Parliament provides an opportunity for secondary school students to engage in civics education and develop their awareness of global affairs.
Volunteers will learn important organisational skills through this committee, including working within budgets, managing relationships with external parties and creating educational content and strategies. These skills transfer well both in terms of further volunteer work and professional development.
