The United Nations Youth Coalition (UNYC) serves to educate North Texas youth and create a movement of action and advocacy to solve the issues facing our generation.
The United Nations Youth Coalition (UNYC) was formed by Pierce Lowary, a student at Highland Park High School. Fueled by passion and great compassion toward social and economic issues affecting global youth, we set out to develop a voice for change, bridging a common cause across numerous cultures and languages.
We are an organization of young North Texans, founded by and uniting young adults to work together to solve the worst socioeconomic issues facing our fellow youth around the world.
The United Nations Youth Coalition is also a proud affiliate of the UN Association-USA Dallas Chapter. By joining our organization, you will receive free membership to the UNA-USA, which serves as a subsidiary of the United Nations Foundation. The United Nations Foundation links the UN's work with others around the world, mobilizing the energy and expertise of business and non-governmental organizations to help the UN tackle issues including climate change, global health, peace and security, women's empowerment, poverty eradication, energy access, and U.S.-UN relations.
