Young people in County Clare are being encouraged to apply to become Ireland’s UN Youth Delegate for 2016/2017.
The United Nations Youth Delegate Programme, coordinated in Ireland by the National Youth Council of Ireland (NYCI) with the support of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, will see two young people between 18 and 25 join Ireland’s delegation to the UN in New York in September and October and February of next year.
Valerie Duffy of the NYCI explained, “I would encourage young people from Clare to apply for this amazing opportunity to represent Ireland at the highest international level, and to work on important issues including immigration and the new sustainable development goals. They are part of the first generation that can end extreme poverty and fix climate change.
“If you, or a young person you know, think you have what it takes to be Ireland’s next UN Youth Ambassador you have until June 9 to apply.”
