Our Work

The World Youth Alliance trains young people to promote the

dignity of the person in international agreements and institutions.


The United Nations:


WYA participates directly at the UN, offering language proposals, sharing grassroots experiences and working one-on-one with delegates to develop person-centered policies. We bring youth delegates to various annual UN commissions, including: the Commission for Social Development, the Commission on the Status of Women, and the Commission on Population and Development.

Members can participate at the UN by: Applying for an Advocacy Fellowship (law students only), applying for a WYA Headquarters internship in New York, or inquiring about attending a specific commission/conference. See our Youth Voices at the UN Program for opportunities.

WYA also maintains a presence at the European Union Institutions (EU), and the Organization of American states (OAS).
