Young Professionals Programme

The UNESCO Young Professionals Programme (YPP) is a global programme which provides the opportunity to young university graduates and young qualified professionals from non- and under-represented Member States to join UNESCO at the early stage of their professional career. It is managed by UNESCO in Paris. The role of the New Zealand National Commission is to nominate New Zealand citizen candidates. The countries eligible for the programme rounds change from time to time, so there is no guarantee that New Zealand will be included in the next round.
