Are you passionate about the future of international affairs and ready to take action? Ask yourself a few questions and youâ€™ll take the first step toward becoming a Campus Advocate:
If you find yourself wanting answers to these questions, youâ€™re ready to get started! You can act as an individual or form an organization on your campus to become an official UNA-USA Campus Advocates group. View our Getting Started and Issues guide here.
- What global problems do I care about solving? Check here to learn more about todayâ€™s most pressing issues.
- Do I feel people in my community would benefit from increased awareness of these problems and possible solutions?
- How can I spread the word and advocate on behalf of those affected by these issues?
WHO is a Campus Advocate?
Students like you are educated, informed, inspired, and ready to lead the next generation of United Nations advocates across the nation. Campus Advocates are students who strengthen the UN by advocating on its behalf (and for the issues it addresses) to their communities and elected leaders.
WHY start a Campus Advocates group?
The power of one is great, but the power of many is even greater. When we act collectively, our voices are amplified to a level that spreads our message far and wide. By joining together to form a Campus Advocates group at your school, you can reach more people in your community, communicate more effectively to elected leaders, and be a better advocate for the United Nations.
HOW do I start?
Ready to leverage your position as a student to spread the word about the vital work of the UN? Getting started is easy!
