About the Next Generation Fellows Program

The UN Foundation believes that young people should be designers of their own future. 

Last year, we launched our pilot Next Generation Fellows program, bringing together eight young leaders to support the UN Secretary-General’s work to reimagine the future of global cooperation. 

The Next Generation Fellows reached out to hundreds of young people from around the world, and spoke with experts and leaders of all ages, to come up with solutions to some of the biggest challenges facing young people and future generations. 

Their brilliant ideas were included in the Secretary-General’s final Our Common Agenda report, and the Fellows also put together their own vision and plan called Our Future Agenda. Find out more about the first cohort here.

    Work with us!

    We are looking for an intern to support the Our Future Agenda initiative.

    This is a paid internship opportunity from June 1-September 2, 2022.

    Please note: candidates must be:

    • Available to work a maximum of 29 hours per week.
    • Enrolled in a degree-granting program during the internship or must be a recent graduate (within 8 months of graduation) of a college or university.
    • Authorized to work in the United States

    If you’re interested in joining a rapidly growing team working to put the interests of young people and future generations at the top of the international agenda, then we’d love for you to apply.
