Take Action

"Take Action" provides educators, parents, and youth a variety of opportunities to help address critical global issues.  Action opportunities range from organizing a UNICEF High School Club to participating in our UNICEF Tap Project. Additionally, a service-learning information sheet provides educators with background information and resources.

For further ideas on how to take action, you can download our "4 Fun Ways to Help UNICEF", targeting toward an elementary audience, or "10 Ways to Support UNICEF", targeting a teen audience.
