Originally on location these when COVID-19 hit we transferred all these programs remote and built these are the programs and members who made all the remote programs possible
The New York Graduate Plan
The New York Graduate Plan operates as an educational opportunity for university enrolled students and alumni. The program will validate student coursework and allow students to gain first-hand experience learning, training and working within the United Nations and with Civil Society to promote the values established by the 2030 Agenda in the field.
Civil Society Engagement From Home
The Civil Society Engagement from Home (CSE) Project is an online, youth-led initiative aiming to bring participants and civil society coalitions together. Remote volunteering allows organizations and CSE participants to team up to address sustainable development challenges from anywhere in the world. Being aware of the necessity for young people to take action on the UN goals for 2030, and with the UN High Level Political Forum (HLPF) approaching, NVINY’s main objective is to encourage and facilitate youth involvement with SDGs and serve as a platform for youth empowerment. This initiative will not only connect participants with the coalitions involved in their areas of work, but also create a network of participants who can collaborate and expand their areas of activity by bringing amplified youth voices together.
Practical Peacebuilding Mentorship Program
In our new six month Mentorship Program with NVINY, you will be joining a community of activists and student leaders from around the world to learn from experienced members of civil society at the United Nations. Mentors will plan and participate in active projects with NVINY to build and implement actions in service to our local and global communities. As a team, the individual and staff at NVINY will address actions and work together to build measurable and sustainable results for a project’s success.
Our Original Programs:
functioning on a remote capacity, the volunteer and internship program are the vehicle that make the rest of the programs and projects a reality, learn more in the links below.
**Please Note | (a) Because of the systemic shutdown of civil society access to the United Nations caused by COVID-19 and reduced NI funding in 2020, all projects listed at this time are volunteer and fully remote with meet-ups, classes, workshops and panels all on numerous digital platforms. There is no guarantee of UN Passes nor Grant Access for your work. (b) All participants must be enrolled in one of our active programs, and are responsible for the completion and success of their individual projects. (c) Availability is limited, the leadership of Nonviolence International is dedicated to the success of all members of the network. We pride ourselves in the individual attention and the successes of each network member. (d) This is a volunteer powered international network of people dedicated to both building and making real impacts in their communities. In NYC alone, our office has hosted over three thousand volunteers, interns, students and/or participants over the past four years. If accepted into a program, you will become a treasured part of this community regardless of your physical location. Successful completion of any program puts you on our Alumni list with special opportunities and access to our larger network.
