Opportunities for Young Professionals
Geneva Summer School - The application period for the 2018 Geneva Summer School is now OPEN. The QUNO Geneva Summer School provides a two-week introduction for young people to the work of the United Nations and QUNO Geneva's four main programme areas. Further information is available here.
Programme Assistants - Applications are now OPEN for three programme assistant positions at QUNO Geneva from September 2018 to August 2019 in Human Rights & Refugees; Peace & Disarmament; and Human Impacts of Climate Change. The closing date for applications is 18 April 2018. For Quakers and those in sympathy with Quaker ideals who have recently completed an undergraduate degree, this year-long service involves everything from attending UN meetings to report writing, research, event planning and routine administration in QUNO's offices in Geneva or New York. Learn more about becoming a Programme Assistant.
- Governance - The Committees that oversee our work are made up of Quakers who volunteer to take on this guidance role. Learn more about our governance and finance.
- Outreach Presentations - We can organize a presentation explaining QUNO’s work to groups of Quakers or others of any age. Please contact us if you are interested.
- Global Issues - New QUNO work areas have often developed through an issue being shared with local Quaker meetings and 'ascended' to Yearly Meetings and to FWCC.
Financial donations allow us to continue our important work, and we appreciate anything you are able to give. Donate to QUNO.
