UN Youth allows our students to develop negotiation, teamwork, and creative problem-solving skills through civics education and gaining a wider understanding of issues in New Zealand and the international community.

UN Youth is a non-profit organisation that aims to provide civics education and a wider understanding of issues in New Zealand and the international community.  It is a student-led group with leaders chosen to run events and workshops within the school.  These leaders are chosen through an application process with the UN Youth organisation and supported in this important role.

Students are also able to join events run through UN Youth through organised regional and national events.  One of these was Auckland’s flagship two-day event AMUN, which saw 500+ student delegates across the region take part.  These events seek to inspire young people to become global citizens and be proactive in creating change in the communities around them.  This growing interest in global politics and civics education shines a very optimistic light for the school community and beyond.

Rangitoto College also runs an annual MUN – a model United Nations event, which is a fun and inclusive event designed to engage students in world issues.
