How to get involved
UN Youth Wellington provides a range of opportunities for passionate young people to be involved in our region. We provide valuable volunteer opportunities at both a high school and a tertiary level.
High School students may represent UN Youth in their schools as High School Ambassadors. Our most dedicated high school delegates are also given the chance to be interns for Crisis Model UN, our annual high school-run Model UN.
Tertiary students are at the heart of our volunteer base in the region – whether it be organising a conference, or sitting on our Regional Council. Victoria University of Wellington students may sign up as members of the UN Youth club on campus, where we provide a range of Model UNs, seminars, and volunteering opportunities. All our events contribute points for participants of the Victoria International Leadership Programme.

Wellington Regional Tikanga Policy Document
Understanding the need and importance to better respect and understand the place of Te Tiriti and tikanga in Aotearoa, the 2019 Regional Council has worked on drafting and adopting our own regional Tikanga Policy document.
Though through baby steps, we envision the region working towards thoughtful and meaningful engagement with New Zealand’s bi-cultural status, and this document is one of those steps we have started to take this year. You can find a copy of the document here.
