IAYSP Attends 2019 Youth Assembly (United States)
The Youth Assembly is hosted by an organization called the Friendship Ambassadors Foundation, which works closely with the United Nations. Twice a year they host this assembly where youth and young adults from around the world attend and connect about the UN Sustainable Development Goals and ways youth can support them. During the assembly, breakout sessions and panels on different global topics are discussed and young people have the opportunity to learn, collaborate and find solutions to issues they may be trying to address in their country.
4 members of YSP from New Jersey, Los Angeles, and Canada participated to network, learn about the issues people in the world are trying to address, and ways YSP can contribute and partner with such an event that connects to youth internationally. 400-500 young people from around the world participated with many being between the ages of 16-24 years old.
