UN Youth is looking for some passionate Volunteers to be the Directors in organising the Globalisation Tour in 2019.

The Globalisation Tour is a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet important players in trade and international affairs in Asia.

The Tour will be run for the first time in 2019. Between 10-20 New Zealand University students will be selected by UN Youth New Zealand as young ambassadors to embark on an exploration of trade and international relations in East/Southeast Asia. You could be leading them!

The delegation will be staffed by Directors who are responsible for the planning and execution of every aspect of the study tour, as well as pastoral care of the delegation while travelling.

Being a Globalisation Tour Director 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:

Professional Development

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. You will be supported in this role and 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!


The role will be a great deal of work, but it is also very rewarding. You will have the opportunity to implement new initiatives, work with awesome people, and form great memories doing so.


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 even if you have not been involved in UN Youth before, it is a way to contribute to the wider community through direct youth development.


Organising an international delegation is no small task. This role is a very unique and significant undertaking that will test the limits of what you are capable of – perfect for someone looking to extend or challenge themselves.
