What it means to be a youth delegate

Youth Delegates have the important role to represent the voice of young people—and their nations—in key dialogues and interactive sessions. Focused on upskilling future leaders, all Youth Delegates receive free access to a bespoke leadership and advocacy training program along with curated career advancement and networking opportunities, including:

Innovation Masterminds

Live sessions connecting Youth Delegates directly with thought leaders, fellow changemakers, celebrity activists and decision-makers, including UN officials, in an intimate setting to discuss global challenges and co-create solutions.

Policy Working Groups

Formed by Youth Delegates to understand the priorities and identify external factors, challenges, opportunity gaps and proposed solutions across the top global challenges most important to young people today.

Global Programming

Live-streamed worldwide, YOUNGA’s global programming features celebrity guest cameos and intergenerational fireside chats between influential leaders and young changemakers on the action we need to create a more inclusive, sustainable world.
