How to Start a UNESCO Club

 

A great way to get involved with UNESCO is to start a UNESCO Club, Center or Association. It begins with a group of like-minded people who desire to promote international understanding and to involve themselves in the programs and activities of UNESCO. Both new and existing organizations are welcome to apply.

New Organizations

 

  • Identify your organization aims and objectivities

  • Adopt a constitution and elect officers.

  • Establish discussion topics for meetings, membership fees and other administrative matters that can be decided with mutual consent of members in a democratic manner.

  • Hold periodical meeting of members to discuss strategies for implementing those programs and activities.

 

Existing Organizations

 

  • Confrm or establish your organization aims and objectivities to ensure they are aligned with the mission and ideals of UNESCO.

  • Confirm or establish a constitution and officers for your organization.

  • Confirm or establish discussion topics for meetings, membership fees and other administrative matters with mutual consent of members in a democratic manner.

  • Hold periodical meeting of members to discuss strategies for implementing thoseprograms and activities.

 

Youth Involvement

 

School Clubs may be initiated by students or faculty members. In either case, the school administration is required to nominate a faculty member to act throughout the school year as the school UNESCO Club Advisor.

Students wanting to establish a new club in a school are required to follow school guidelines for creating clubs and also apply with the United States Federation of UNESCO Clubs, Centers and Associations (USFUCA). The USFUCA will provide assistance and guidance throughout the application process.

Once a school UNESCO Club Advisor is assigned to the club, the first order of business is to develop a process to appoint officers and the executive committee members among the students.  The leadership of the School UNESCO Club is then required to submit its application within 30 days using the online application found here.  Each Semester, the club is advised to send an electronic copy of their activities to the USFUCA atreports@unescoUSA.org.
