The U.S. Fund for UNICEF’s High School and Campus Initiative National Council members are effective agents of change and child survival. The National Councils were created to work closely with the U.S. Fund for UNICEF to represent and support UNICEF clubs in over six hundred high schools and colleges around the country. Comprised of six high school students and six college students, the Councils help gather resources, plan trainings, and offer guidance for UNICEF Club members. Most importantly, the Councils obtain feedback from clubs and individuals to make specific recommendations regarding the work of the UNICEF Clubs Program. Throughout the course of the year, these student leaders learn about UNICEF’s work in the context of their own development and become life-long advocates until no children die of a preventable cause.
