    The FAWCO Youth Program was launched in 2013 at the Biennial Conference in Bern with the mission to promote cultural understanding and raise awareness of global issues in our youth and help them develop into responsible and caring global citizens.

    Youth Development is a priority at the UN. Secretary General Ban Ki Moon declared that “Working with and for young people is a priority in my Five-year Action Plan.” Youth make up nearly half (48%) of the world's population, and in less than 10 years will account for almost 75% of the global workforce. It is time for our youth to start working together and empowering one another towards creating a better world for future generations. FAWCO, being a global family, is in an advantageous position to engage our members’ children in this endeavor. 

    FAWCO Youth has programs for your children from 5 to 25 years old.  Americana is an interactive monthly educational program, which aims to ground American expatriate children (from pre-school to teens) in the history and traditions of American life and culture. Cultural Volunteers is a one-week introduction to volunteerism and social issues, hosted by a FAWCO Club.  In 2014 - 2015 a program for a Youth Ambassador was piloted. Young adults (18-25 years old) who are interested in the United Nations may apply to be a FAWCO UN Youth Rep or attend conferences for young people geared toward UN engagement.
