About United Nations Youth Northern Territory Incorporated
UN Youth Northern Territory is a division of UN Youth Australia, a national youth-led organisation that aims to educate and empower young Australians on global issues. We know that young leaders have the vision and passion to create meaningful change within their communities and throughout the world, and aim to equip them with the skills and inspiration to do so.
At UN Youth Australia, we educate over 15,000 young Australians each year about international issues and the role of the UN. Our activities are run for youth and by youth, and everything we do is aimed at empowering young people to be leaders on the world stage.
UN Youth Australia is run entirely by a team of over 1,000 extremely dedicated volunteers, all aged 18-25. We are one of the only organisations brave enough to empower young people with skills in education, in design, in leadership, in organisation, in diplomacy and in negotiation to execute their vision – and we couldn’t be happier with the result!
Last year we surveyed how our volunteers contributed to the organisation, and here’s what we found out: we have over 1,000 volunteers who, if paid at minimum wage, donate over $2.7 million a year to educating young Australians through the work they do with our organisation
If all this excites you; if you’re passionate about providing pathways for young people to achieve great things, and have a passion and commitment to lead positive change within the community, then we want you on our team.
