Role of the Albanian Youth Delegates

Post General Assembly phase

When returning home, the Albanian Youth Delegates will report to the MEFA, UNA Albania, and the relevant government agencies about their experience, activity and input. Furthermore, they will attend and organize different presentations and events with youth, presenting their experience, the latest UN youth developments and youth policies in the ambit of their follow-up national tour of consultations.

The events organized will be participation-oriented in order for the youth delegates to fulfill their task as representatives of the youth. Events will include UN-learning and SDGs workshops, advising youth on pathway programs into UN involvement, as well as consulting with the youth on challenges that the former are facing in Albania and in the global stage. In addition, the official Albania UN Youth Delegate website will be updated regularly with events, Delegates’ activities and engagement, notices about volunteer opportunities, and act as a platform where Albanian youth can highlight their causes in digital format. Based on the success of their efforts, the youth delegate will be invited as speakers and contributors in various national and international events organized by UNA Albania and/or its partners.

During the last months of the mandate, the programme should have a phasing out period, when the youth delegates use their network and experience to create opportunities for others and to ensure the sustainability and continuity of UNYD Albania.
