Student Advocacy in Action




As the next generation of leaders in the international community, students stand poised to take action and make a difference in their schools, communities, as well as their country.

GenUN, a national student initiative of UNA-USA, engages a generation of young people in the work of the United Nations by empowering them to inform, inspire, and mobilize their peers to support the vital work of the UN. Globally minded middle school, high school, and college students can promote constructive United States leadership at the UN by participating in an array of UNA-USA activities at the local and national levels.

Whether you are a Model UN delegate, an advocate for reducing global poverty, an international affairs student, or new to the work of international organizations, GenUN offers you the opportunity to participate in a nationwide movement for the United Nations.

Explore the opportunities for students and young people — to help build a strong U.S.-UN relationship — and a better world.
