The Youth of United Nations Association of Tanzania or YUNA Tanzania is an important partner to UNA Tanzania. The organization was registered in 2005, but was first established in 1996 by a group of dynamic young people as a youth section of UNA Tanzania.
YUNA has since grown to have membership in schools and universities across the country; with over 35,000 members in Secondary Schools through 200 UN Clubs and 35 UN Chapters in Universities.
An important part of the organization’s activities is the organizing of Model United Nations General Assemblies. These activities have proved an important learning platform for young people, to exercise diplomacy, negotiation and implement a nation’s international policy and development position – much akin to the work done by the United Nations General Assembly and its committees.
