Young Professionals (YP) is a program of the United Nations Association of the National Capital Area (UNA-NCA) that seeks to engage young professionals in discussions of international affairs, while also emphasizing the importance of multilateral cooperation and the UN. While we appreciate supporters of all ages, YP members are typically between the ages of 21-40, and are a diverse group of individuals from the fields of business, law, government, nonprofit, the arts and philanthropy. YP provides an exciting opportunity to interact with like-minded individuals and gives young professionals from all walks of life a unique forum in which to learn more about current international issues, the UN, and the work of UNA-NCA.
YP holds several events throughout the year with our committees, which include: Africa, Asia-Pacific, Human Rights, International Law, International Economic Development, Latin America & Caribbean, Middle East, Peace & Security, and Women & Gender . These events focus on relevant policy issues, career development, and social networking.
We are always looking for committed, reliable, and enthusiastic persons to join and participate in these activities. If you are interested in joining a YP committee please:
