The United Nations International Affairs Seminar for Youth challenges youth to learn about international affairs and U.S. foreign policy through study, discussion and presentations in the United Nations Center in New York City and Washington, D.C. It seeks to encourage faith-based critical thinking and reflection through prayer, worship, discussion and community building.
Known by it’s shorter name (UN Seminar). The United Nations Seminar has been a vital part of the Ohio Christian Youth Fellowship since the early 1960’s. From then to now well over a thousand young people from Disciples congregations around Ohio have had the opportunity to travel to New York City and Washington D.C. for a week. For many, this has been a life changing experience, witnessing the diverse ways that faith plays a part in the decision making of our nation and the world.
We are pleased to share this adventure with the youth of the Heartland Conference UCC.
