The World Federation of United Nations Associations (WFUNA) is a global nonprofit organization working for a stronger and more effective United Nations. Established in 1946, we represent and coordinate a membership of over 100 United Nations Associations and their thousands of members. We work to build a better world by strengthening and improving the United Nations, through the engagement of people who share a global mindset and support international cooperation – global citizens. Our organization has offices at the United Nations in both New York and Geneva and hosts interns in both locations. www.wfuna.org
Programs Description – WFUNA’s Human Rights in Action (HRA): program is tailored to enhance youth activism. Launched in 2011, HRA has trained more than 175 youth who in turn impacted thousands of beneficiaries through locally implemented projects. The program leverages the human rights infrastructure in Geneva to deliver a unique training, followed by a project implementation phase. WFUNA collaborates the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights to further amplify participants’ projects.
– WFUNA’s Training Programs at the United Nations offer participants a unique chance to take part in training and educational activities at the United Nations. The Training Programs promote the participation of youth in the UN’s work.
The Intern will provide support to the Officer in charge of educational programs and trainings, and participates to the general tasks of the office of WFUNA in Geneva.
