Start a BE UNICEF Club at your high school!
Have you ever dreamed of working for UN? Do you consider yourself to be the leader of social movements at your school? Are you the type of person who responds immediately to news related to assisting impoverished areas to help their economies or advancing progressive causes like social justice and capital redistribution?
If so, here is an ideal extracurricular activity for you—BE UNICEF
We all know that UNICEF is a United Nations Program that provides long-term humanitarian and developmental assistance to children and mothers in developing countries. But did you know that UNICEF has piloted a project aiming at educating youth about global issues? It’s called the BE UNICEF—a youth-led initiative that partners with U.S Fund to advocate and fundraise on behalf of UNICEF’s lifesaving works.
This program is designed to be driven by students who are motivated to play a vital role in helping the world. As a BE UNICEF club leader, you can initiate concerts and other fundraisers, write letters to elected officials, be a part of UNICEF Tap Project campaigns and be in charge of anything that you think will help UNICEF.
So if you can answer ‘yes’ to any of the questions I have thrown above, here’s an easy guideline you can follow to join it.
