UNICEF Aotearoa’s Young Ambassador Program in New Zealand 2024

UNICEF Aotearoa’s Young Ambassador Programme is all about creating a platform to amplify your influence on the issues that matter to you. Here and around the world.

We want to help create an accessible and meaningful way for young people to champion their internationally recognised rights here in Aotearoa.

There’ll be opportunities to engage in advocacy activities across the country and around the world as part of our global whanau. Learn more about UNICEF over here.

Aim and Benefits

Each year we support up to eight Young Ambassadors aged 17-24 across the country, to build their confidence in speaking up for what’s important to the next generation.

You’ll travel across New Zealand to meet and understand what matters most to other rangatahi while representing your individual communities and cultures.

As part of the programme, you’ll also receive specialist training and tons of support in wider youth engagement.  

Supported by UNICEF Aotearoa, you’ll then be able to raise the important issues with the key decision-makers. 

Government Relations: 

You’ll be given opportunities to talk and meet with ministers at Parliament to raise those big issues and champion the voice and dreams of rangatahi in Aotearoa.  


It doesn’t matter what background, skill set, or experience UNICEF Aotearoa’s Young Ambassadors come with. It doesn’t matter where you were born or went to school, how high your grades are or even what colour your hair is.

We’re looking for people who’ll champion the rights of rangatahi and speak out on the social and environmental issues important to them. And we wanna help whoever that might be, to empower other young people to find their own voice and speak out on what they feel strongly about too.
