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.
