What is it?
The UNA-USA Champions program provides UNA-USA members with the opportunity to lead on global issues within their communities. Champions are key advocates and preliminary organizers that play a key role in expanding UNA-USA’s reach across the nation. The ideal candidate is 21+ and not currently enrolled in school full time. They are looking to become active as a UNA-USA advocate in their community, and already interested or invested in U.N. issues. Participants can be in this program for as long as they meet the requirements and want to help spread the word about the UN!

Activity Expectations

Reports on these six activities should be completed (with photos, videos, and confirmations to document where appropriate) and submitted to National at least twice a year (December and May).
