Represent youth on the global stage!
Through "Youth Rep", a team of three Swiss youth delegates to the UN represents their generation at various UN meetings, developping policy input and informing other young people in Switzerland about international policies and challenges.
The programm "Youth Rep" is being directed by the SNYC in collaboration with the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs. Youth delegates are thus part of the official Swiss delegations to various UN conferences such as the General Assembly in New York. The project is under the patronage of Federal Councellor and Foreign Minister Micheline Calmy-Rey.
The Youth Reps are volunteers and serve for two years. Each team of three Youth Reps represents Swiss youth at the UN for a year and coaches their successors the following year, thus guaranteeing the continuity of their work.
