The UNA-NCA Young Professionals Program is a group of diverse individuals between the ages of 21-40. We host education, networking, and advocacy events throughout the year to support the mission and work of the United Nations.

The Young Professionals Program (YP) offers opportunities to interact with like-minded individuals and gives young professionals a unique forum in which to learn more about current international issues, the UN, and the work of UNA-NCA. The YP program fosters organic mentoring and professional development opportunities for all members of UNA-NCA through programming and collaboration with UNA-NCA committees.
