Global Citizenship Fellowship – High School Clubs Fellow

Global Citizenship Fellowship, High School Clubs Fellow: The High School Clubs Fellow will support the core functions and goals of the Youth Engagement Department’s UNICEF High School Clubs Program. The Fellowship is a highly-selective, full-time, two-year program that prepares diverse, committed, and globally-minded individuals for effective leadership in public service.
By helping to establish UNICEF’s domestic imprint, the Fellows exemplify the concept of the “global citizen” as someone who understands global interconnectedness, respects and values diversity, has the ability to challenge injustice and inequalities, and takes action in a way that is personally meaningful. Fellows aim to inspire their communities to take action for the world’s children by engaging local groups and cultivating awareness.
The UNICEF High School Clubs Program is a student led initiative that partners with the U.S. Fund for UNICEF to educate, advocate, and fundraise on behalf of UNICEF’s lifesaving work around the world. With over 500 clubs across the country, UNICEF High School Clubs play a vital role in working towards a day where zero children die of preventable causes.
The High School Clubs Fellow works closely with students and advisors to support clubs and their activities. They will also help gather information, create new resources, and implement trainings.
