In this episode, I speak to Anna about the opportunities available through the UNA-USA network. We discuss how college students and young professionals can get involved with the United Nations and work to shape policy on a global level. Anna Mahalak manages youth engagement initiatives for the United Nations Association of the USA, a program of the UN Foundation.
Her work focuses on elevating youth voices in building public support for the UN through the UNA-USA campus chapter network, the U.S. Youth Observer program, and young professionals programming. Before joining the UN Foundation, Anna worked at The George Washington University in the Division of Student Affairs. She has a master’s in Higher Education Administration/Student Affairs from The George Washington University and a B.A. in Government from The College of William and Mary.
