The Youth Assembly is recognized as the largest youth conference at the United Nations. Over the course of 18 sessions, 13,000 youth from 6 continents and more than 100 countries have developed a better understanding of the various practices and perspectives in international development.
Through our extensive alumni network, partnership with like-minded organizations, and development of youth resolutions, the Youth Assembly’s powerful impact ripples far beyond the conference. Delegates leave the assembly with the knowledge and resources they need to make a genuine and ongoing change.
Former Youth Assembly delegates have gone on to become well-known and highly influential actors in the international arena, including the UN Secretary-General’s Envoy on Youth Ahmad Alhendawi.
