Day 1 - United Nations Headquarters

United Nations Tour

United Nations Private Briefing

Meetings with UN delegates of agencies and organizations

Meeting with UN Youth staff and briefing

Day 2 - Conference Center

The day begins with an in-depth lesson on the history of the United Nations and its purpose. This is followed by an explanation of the structure, leadership and the rules of procedure of the United Nations starting with the General Assembly and subsidiary organs. Participants learn about the specific work undertaken in the United Nations’ boards, commissions, committees, councils and panels and working groups. Prior to convening the General Assembly, each participant will be assigned a country and guided through researching her country then writing a position paper. When the General Assembly convenes delegates will give speeches, negotiate with other delegates, caucus and propose resolutions along with amendments before finally voting. All activities will be guided by a camp counselor in small working groups of delegates.

Girl Scouts participating in Camp United Nations for Girls New York City will earn a Global Action Award upon completion of the program. The Delegate fee is $395. The delegate fee covers all program materials and meals. For questions please email info@girlsinpolitics.org or call +1 (202) 660-1457 ext 2.
