Mission Statement

To reach out to national and local citizens, opinion leaders, and our government to educate, mobilize, and inspire Americans to support the principles and vital work of the United Nations, to strengthen the United Nations system, to promote constructive United States leadership in that system, and to achieve the goals of the UN Charter.

Description

  • Advocacy: We meet with members of Congress and their staff to push for the ratification of essential treaties and resolutions. Our advocacy efforts focus on increasing government support for peacekeeping and assistance related to the UN's Millennium Development Goals.
  • Education: Our Global Classrooms, Washington, DC program educates over 500 students at local middle and high schools about global issues and organizes the Annual Model UN Conference. On a university level, the Fellows program offers graduate students relevant internships, networking opportunities, academic credit, and educational seminars.
  • Networking: Committee meetings, happy hour socials, mentoring, and local events are just a small sample of how UNA-NCA brings together Washington DC residents with shared interests and goals. Our Young Professionals for International Cooperation(YPIC) program is a great place to gain career experience and connect with others in the industry.
  • Outreach: We provide workshops, conferences, and seminars on the United Nations and related foreign policy issues. Our e-newsletter, UN Express, sends you exclusive and advance email notification of important international affairs events sponsored by the UNA-NCA.
