Join the US Youth Observer to the UN in San Francisco, CA on Sunday, May 7!
You are invited to participate in a Human Rights Advocacy workshop that will equip you with the knowledge you need to make a positive impact in your communities and around the world. This workshop serves as a platform for college students to develop their leadership skills, build the capacity of their campuses, strengthen a network of passionate students, and participate in a national initiative with college campus leaders nationwide.
This generation of young Americans is uniquely equipped to advance progress on the global goals through creativity, entrepreneurship, and the unprecedented reach of collegiate networks. In September 2015, 193 world leaders convened at the United Nations agreed to 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development. The goals are a framework to end extreme poverty, inequality and climate disruptions by 2030. Learn more about your role in implementing the Global Goals in your community!
In this workshop you’ll get to hear from and interact with:
- Nicol Perez, US Youth Observer to the United Nations (2016-2017); the US Youth Observer represents American youth at the United Nations
- Anna Mahalak, Youth Engagement Manager for the United Nations Association, a program of the UN Foundation
- Campus and community leaders
Apply here by April 14 to confirm your spot! Registration is free and breakfast and lunch will be provided.
