UNICEF offers young people the opportunity to participate in local activism through our week-long activism training programme. This is ideal for a Transition Year Work Experience Week or Volunteerism week. Each course can accommodate 35 people, aged between 15-17.
UNICEF offers two types of courses, online and in-person. Our online course was developed as a response to the pandemic. Last year, students gave our online course a rating of 9.2 out of 10.
