At the Winter Youth Assembly, we help attendees diversify their skill sets and gain valuable insights that are essential for their future career paths and global development. For nearly 15 years, delegates have agreed that the UN experience, speakers, and related events at the Youth Assembly have been life-changing.

Undergraduates with an idea for a new social venture that needs funding and support will have the opportunity to participate in the Resolution Social Venture Challenge, brought to you by our partner  The Resolution Project.

Participants in the Resolution Social Venture Challenge will be required to participate in the first stage of the competition on Tuesday, February 10.
The full program for the Winter YA will be announced shortly.
