Young Professionals (YP) is a program of UNA-NCA that seeks to engage young professionals in discussions of international affairs and emphasizes the importance of multilateral cooperation and the UN. While we appreciate supporters of all ages, YP members are typically between the ages of 21-40 and are a diverse group of individuals from the fields of business, law, government, nonprofit, the arts, and philanthropy. YP provides opportunities to interact with like-minded individuals and gives young professionals a unique forum in which to learn more about current international issues, the UN, and the work of UNA-NCA.
Young Professionals supports the mission of UNA-NCA and is committed to providing information and opportunities to young professionals and students in the area. YP holds several events each year through our committees, which you can learn about here. These events focus on relevant policy issues, career development, social networking and feature speakers from a wide range of international agencies and organizations.
