Are you considering applying to become the next US Youth Observer at the UN? Have questions about the program?
Join the Bureau of International Organization Affairs, the UN Association of the USA, and 2012-2013 US-Youth Observer Brooke Loughrin for a twitter Q &A on Tuesday, August 14, 2013 at 2:00pm EDT. Use #YouthObserver to submit questions about the program, the application process or to ask Brooke about her experience as US Youth Observer last year.
If you are age 18 to 25, and have an interest and passion for international affairs, civic engagement, and youth issues, you could qualify for this once in a lifetime chance to see the United Nations in action — in person. The U.S. Youth Observer will travel to New York, interact with the U.S. delegation and other youth representatives from around the world — and then share their experiences to their peers and the rest of the world.
