Applications Open for UNAOC-EF Summer School

UNAOC

The UNAOC-EF Summer School is the result of a collaboration between two organizations committed to bridging cultural divides – the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations and EF Education First.

The conviction that youth are a driving force for positive social change is the basis for the UNAOC-EF Summer School. This week-long summer school brings together 75 youth from across the globe, to address pressing global challenges, within the context of cultural and religious diversity. The highly interactive program will immerse participants in the essentials of global citizenship. Seminars, workshops, and roundtable discussions will challenge participants and increase their impact as leaders in their fields.

The UNAOC-EF Summer School will be held on EF’s historic American campus in Tarrytown, New York. Participants will be hosted on the center’s 25-acre campus, which boasts on site residences, student lounges, a fitness center and swimming pool.

One highlight of this year’s Summer School will be a guided tour of the United Nations headquarters in New York City. Participants will tour the General Assembly Hall and explore a variety of exhibits detailing the history of the UN and learn about how the UN addresses issues such as disarmament, peace and security.

Formed in 2005 by former Secretary General Kofi Annan, the UN Alliance of Civilizations’ mission is to improve cross-cultural understanding and cooperation among countries, peoples and communities.
