SDGs Kenya Forum African UN Youth Delegates Program for Kenyans
Apply to take part in the UN Youth Delegates program! The SDGs Kenya Forum in collaboration with CRISP the Project “African UN Youth Delegates” invites applications from young, highly motivated people between the age of 18 and 32.
The project aims to support, guide and dispatch a new generation of the UN Youth Delegates from Sudan, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Uganda, Kenya, and South Sudan. Further, we aim to build up UN Associations in all participating countries and gives you the chance to become a UN Youth Fellow and engage with the work of the United Nations on the ground.
If you are one of the 20 selected candidates, you have already secured the opportunity to be a Youth Fellow and access to UN internships and outreach programs. You will also be invited to a National Assessment Workshop in Nairobi, together with 20 other UN Youth Fellows from all over the country. The workshop will introduce you to your tasks and opportunity and prepare you to address the pressing issues of the youth both nationally and internationally.
At the National Assessment, 2 Fellows will be selected to become this year’s UN Youth Delegates and will get the chance to represent the youth interests at the United Nations in New York and regionally in East Africa. Further, the 2 delegates will be invited to 3 regional workshops.
Both the fellows and delegates will be required to attend and travel to events and workshops throughout the year, so please confirm your availabilities at the given dates before applying.
We particularly encourage applications from women, disabled, and minority youths to ensure a true and diverse representation of the youth of your country!
