Страна: Украина;

Дедлайн: 18.08.2019



Age: 20 – 27 years old
Even though one of the Program’s eligibility criteria requires an applicant to be an age ranging from 20-27, exceptions can be made provided the fact that the applicant possesses necessary qualifications and meets the rest of Program requirements.

Excellent command of both written and spoken Ukrainian and English is required (Upper Intermediate/Advanced level). Knowledge of any other official languages of the United Nations (Russian, Spanish, French, Arabic, Chinese) is desirable but not a must. For those, who have taken language proficiency tests (TOEFL, IELTS, DELF/DALF, DELE etc.), enclosing copies of official certificates is highly recommended. Those applicants, who do not have a language certificate, are kindly asked to indicate their English proficiency level in the special section of the application.

Educational and Professional Background:
Young professionals, as well as students from various academic backgrounds currently working or studying in Ukraine, may apply.
Even though a BA or a MA degree in International Relations/Political Science is desirable, qualified candidates with relevant work or volunteering experience are strongly encouraged to submit an application.

Relevant experience should include demonstrated leadership and proactivity in tackling youth-related issues through volunteering, NGO, project management or community work, etc.

The Ukrainian Youth Delegate to the UN Program is a unique international platform for developing new ideas and fostering youth participation in decision-making processes while serving as a liaison between Ukrainian youth and the global community. However, it also requires your commitment, dedication, and responsibility in achieving the Program’s goals and objectives throughout the whole year. Please note that you are not allowed to participate simultaneously in any long-term (more than 3 weeks) professional/educational programs that require you to be outside of Ukraine during your one-year Ukrainian Youth Delegate Mandate unless the trip is related to UN Youth Delegate professional activities.

Successful semi-finalists must be able to attend in person the second and the third rounds of the selection process which will take place in Kyiv at the end of August 2019. This year, no Skype interviews will be conducted.
