Apply for United Nations Youth Champion for Disarmament Program

Do you:

  • Have an interest in raising awareness and promoting change for a more peaceful and secure world?
  • Desire to work with an office at the United Nations?
  • Want to study disarmament in Vienna, Geneva, Hiroshima and Nagasaki?

If you answered “yes” to at least one of those questions, please consider applying to be a United Nations Youth Champion for Disarmament.

The Program

This June, the United Nations will provide a fully-funded program for 10 students from around the world to learn about nuclear disarmament, and how those students can spread the message of disarmament in their local communities. This program will take place both as online courses and a two-week in-person study tour in Vienna, Geneva, Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
