Founded in 2008, Lehigh University's United Nations Youth Representative Program matches UN-accredited NGOs with high-achieving undergraduate and graduate students who serve as that NGO’s voice at the United Nations. Youth Representatives meet with global decision makers, participate in international conferences, and moderate briefings broadcast worldwide. Our Youth Representatives speak on the floor of the General Assembly and advocate on a variety of platforms related to agenda at the United Nations and worldwide.
