UNICEF Live!

UNICEF Live! virtually connects global citizens in schools, organizations, and communities from across the country with the U.S. Fund for UNICEF.  Together, we engage with the concept of global citizenship, explore UNICEF’s past and present work for children around the world, and empower global citizens with the skills, tools, and mindsets to take action in personally meaningful ways.

Mission

UNICEF Live! grows and strengthens the movement to put children first by connecting global citizens to the work and world of UNICEF.

Duration

Flexible, based on audience needs—ideally 25 - 40 minutes.

Two Platforms, One Form

UNICEF Live! is now live on two platforms—TeachUNICEF.org (bit.ly/uniceflive) and on Skype in the Classroom (bit.ly/washlive).
