Membership Opportunity- Gator for UNICEF!

Gator for UNICEF is a student-led organization part of the UNICEF USA clubs program. UNICEF USA and our club work to strengthen the goals of UNICEF, a United Nations nonprofit organization aiding children and women in developing countries worldwide.

 

The chapter participates in advocacy on behalf of UNICEF USA, speaking on important legislation that affects both the city of Gainesville and the country. Last year, Gator for UNICEF spoke with Gainesville’s Mayor, Lauren Poe, about UNICEF’s Child-Friendly Cities Initiative. Many of the members also participated in UNICEF USA’s 2021 Virtual Advocacy Week, where they met with the offices of Florida legislators such as Senator Marco Rubio, Senator Rick Scott, and Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz. This semester, Gator for UNICEF is excited to continue promoting the importance of youth voices and child safety through advocacy.

 

Gator for UNICEF members also benefit from speakers such as Dr. Stephen Mulkey, who spoke about the urgency of climate change at a General Body Meeting last semester. Dr. Mulkey helped club members learn more about the significance of climate change, its impact on the world’s children, and how to educate others on such global issues.

 

The club also provides opportunities for professional development in the form of leadership positions, networking opportunities, and headshot events.

 

This Fall semester there are four remaining general body meetings in addition to multiple fundraising, advocacy, and social events. Membership is open until September 29th. The third general body meeting of the semester is on Wednesday, September 29th in Matherly Hall Room 0002 and will be the last chance to register for membership. Get excited for a Halloween themed meeting where you will learn about Trick or Treat for UNICEF!
