Call for Applications: UN Invites Youth to Apply for Second Edition of Youth Champions for Disarmament Program


With reference to resolution 76/45 entitled “Youth, Disarmament and Non-proliferation”, adopted by the General Assembly on 6 December 2021, the Office for Disarmament Affairs, in seeking specific measures to promote the meaningful and inclusive participation and empowerment of youth on disarmament and non-proliferation issues.

We are calling on young people to apply for the second edition of the United Nations Youth Champions for Disarmament programme- an innovative learning programme aimed at empowering youth to work for disarmament in their communities.

Fifteen young people between the ages of 18 and 24 will be selected to participate in the second edition of the training programme, which will introduce a regional focus.

Through this regional approach, the training programme will bring together a geographically diverse group of young disarmament advocates and enable them to share their specific regional perspectives – from Africa and Europe; Asia and the Pacific; the Americas and the Caribbean regions – and connect them to the global disarmament discourse.

In addition, three job opportunities with UNODA for young professionals are built into the programme to support its implementation at regional levels.

These positions will be made public in due course.

Applications for the United Nations Youth Champions for Disarmament training programme will be accepted until 27 November 2023. Detailed information about the programe could be found at
