Training Programs at the UN launched in 2012 in support of WFUNA’s focus on youth engagement and leadership. We welcome thousands of students every year who seek immersion in the core values of the United Nations: Global Citizenship, Sustainable Development and Inclusive Societies.
WFUNA’s Training Programs offer the necessary tools to understand evolving global challenges and a unique perspective on critical issues on the international agenda. Our programs aim to transfer specialized knowledge and information to develop and reinforce practical skills that will allow young people to critically engage with the work of the UN. Participants will enhance their ability to work effectively in cross-cultural contexts and foster the 21st century skills needed to succeed in an increasingly interconnected world. We provide our students the opportunity to reflect concretely on how young people can contribute to world peace, and how they, as tomorrow’s leaders, can shape it.
