UN Reps and Global Issues

    UN Youth Reps


    FAWCO UN Youth Reps attend UN Youth Assemblies, the ECOSOC Youth Forum, and other youth-related conferences and meetings at the UN in New York. To learn more, read their blogs about their experiences at the UN.

    In Fall 2017, FAWCO's UN Youth Rep was Sammy Witt, son of Susan Stanley-Witt (AWC Hamburg). In Summer 2017, Paige Higbie (daughter of Erica Higbie, FAUSA) served as UN Youth Rep for FAWCO and was an Intern with NGO CSW New York. She is now studying for a Master's degree in international relations in Germany, and serves as FAWCO's UN Youth Rep Coordinator.  Another FAWCO UN Youth Rep is Vali Mitsakis; her mother is a member of AWO Greece. She was active with the Model UN in high school, and she is now a college student in New York, and works at a Greek radio station, sometimes broadcasting news from the UN.

    FAWCO's first UN Youth Rep was Gavin Higbie, the son of Erica Higbie (FAUSA). Gavin attended UN meetings live in New York and via webcast in 2014 and posted blogs about his experiences.

    FAWCO’s Youth Program

    FAWCO's Youth Program involves the next generation of young women and men in the Youth Cultural Volunteers Program, engaging in volunteer activities that foster good global citizenship. This is a great way for your club’s teenagers to engage in global issues and get involved with other FAWCO youth.
