Become a UNICEF Young Ambassador

2014-15 Young Ambassadors

UNICEF Australia is committed to putting children and young people at the centre of our work – not just as recipients but as powerful and equal partners in the work of ensuring their rights are realised.

One of the ways we do this is through our Young Ambassador program, which brings youth directly into the heart of our decision-making.

Our Young Ambassadors are equipped with a deep and applied understanding of child rights which they take with them into every sphere of work and life, during their time as Young Ambassadors and for years to come.
