UNA-USA members from across the nation are invited to apply to join the fifth cohort of the UNA Blogger Fellowship at the 2018 Social Good Summit! Social Good Summit UNA Blogger Fellows are grassroots UN advocates, bloggers, and UNA-USA members from across the nation. As representatives of UNA chapters, they are attending the Social Good Summit to dive into pressing global issues and return home to motivate their chapters to take action. While attending, they are expected to blog and build digital media content for their local chapters on a range of issues; many of these posts will appear on the UNA-USA website and at GenUN, UNA-USA’s online youth hub.
