Become a Facilitator

UN Youth Australia’s Facilitators inspire the next generation of young Australians. Through running educational programs designed to empower young Australians, facilitators fill the gaps in the educational curriculum, teaching students about global issues through peer-to-peer learning.

We’re on the lookout for passionate and enthusiastic volunteers. Does this sound like you?

Our volunteers

Our volunteers are involved in every aspect of our organisation. They organise and run our events, facilitate (teach) students, manage our administration and finance, operate our marketing, and develop innovative programs. They’re entrepreneurial and care about creating a generation of young Australians who are engaged with the world around them.

All young people in Australia aged 17 to 25, who have finished high school, can volunteer with UN Youth. Our volunteers come from a wide variety of academic, cultural, personal, and professional backgrounds; and our opportunities are fantastic pathways to developing yourself, and contributing to the growth of others.
