UNA-USA YOUNG PROFESSIONALS is a program of the United Nations Association of the United States of America that seeks to engage young professionals in discussions of international affairs, emphasizing the importance of multilateral cooperation and the United Nations. While we appreciate supporters of all ages, members are typically between the ages of 21-40, and are a diverse group of individuals from the fields of business, law, government, nonprofit, the arts and philanthropy. UNA-USA Young Professionals provides an exciting opportunity to interact with like-minded individuals and gives young professionals from all walks of life a unique forum in which to learn more about current international issues, the United Nations, and the work of UNA-USA.

UNA-USA Young Professionals of the Southern New York State Division develops international affairs-oriented educational and advocacy programs that will help New York City's many young professionals further their knowledge of pressing international issues, dedicate themselves to making a change in the world, and take a step towards becoming future global leaders.
