UNA-USA Student Alliance Program

June 28, 2011

The very exciting UNA-USA Student Alliance Program works with groups at colleges, universities, high schools and middle schools around the country.  An individual student may also join.

The program is designed to meet the needs of today’s globally minded middle school, high school, and undergraduate college students. UNA-USA Student Alliance is dedicated to “educating, inspiring, and mobilizing American students to support the principles and vital work of the United Nations, strengthening the United Nations system, promoting constructive United States leadership in that system, and achieving the goals of the United Nations Charter.”

UNA-USA’s Student Alliance seeks to engage students in a nationwide network of motivated individuals, student advocacy groups, international affairs clubs, and Model UN teams.  Through Student Alliance students have opportunities to sound their voices and make their opinions heard amongst their peers, in their communities, across the nation and around the world!

The four areas of focus currently are: “Human Rights and International Justice,” “Building a Consensus on Climate Change,” “Strengthening the United Nations,” plus a UNA-USA Student Alliance group can identify a priority interest of their own. Setting up a group is easy – dues are $10 per student plus a small annual fee for the group.  Student leaders can participate in leadership training through periodic telephone calls with UNA-USA leaders and others.  

Students can work with our chapters in Brooklyn, Queens, NY (Manhattan) and Westchester.  Student groups in The Bronx, Columbia, Dutchess, Greene, Nassau, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Suffolk, Sullivan, and Ulster can work directly with the Southern New York State Division.

Student Alliances can also participate in the UNA-USA Southern New York State Division’s Energy Project.   See the blog, sign up, and look for updates.   Send any contributions togagarland@gmail.com
