A Youth Envoy acts as a link or liaison between your congregation or your congregation’s Youth Group and the work of the Unitarian Universalist United Nations Office (UU-UNO). In other words, you report the work your congregation is doing pertaining to the United Nations and the Millennium Development Goals to our Office. If your congregation doesn’t do work in association with UU United Nations Office, you advocate for it. You also tell your congregation what the UU-UNO is doing, gather supporting friends for the Office, and encourage attendance to our Annual Intergenerational Spring Seminar. You will work with your congregation’s Adult Envoy to ensure intergenerational collaboration, and if your congregation lacks an Adult Envoy, you will recruit one.
It provides you with intergenerational leadership opportunities, keeps you informed about global human rights issues, and gives you a voice at the United Nations. And it can be really fun!
By providing this liaison, the UU-UNO is able to more readily reach out to congregations. It also provides a louder Youth presence in our Office.
Youth Envoys are between the ages of 14 and 19, or just generally in High School.
To be a Youth Envoy, you must be active in a Unitarian Universalist Congregation, and preferably in a Youth Group.
