SustainUS is simply the most organized, prominent, and knowledgeable youth organization that attends United Nations negotiations. Their role in organizing youth from the United States and around the world to speak about issues that concern youth is unparalleled.

We at Clemson University Students for Environmental Action have looked at SustainUS for leadership and guidance in countless issues.

I was first involved with SustainUS in 2005, as a college sophomore excited about the opportunity to go to the UN headquarters and observe the processes there first-hand. Six years later, I'm still involved because I believe in SustainUS' mission of empowering youth and bringing youth voices to UN proceedings. SustainUS, while fulfilling this objective beyond expectations, still needs to find a way to a) engage youth who are interested in these issues on an ongoing basis, not just around UN delegations and b) reach out to youth, who would otherwise come, were it not for financial reasons, and access appropriate grants etc. to support their attendance.

The Great!

Find a patron who could sustain us in our operational expenses and finance a % of our annual delegation costs.

SustainUS is a fantastic learning experience, and a great way for youth to make their voices heard in international policy. I've worked with the organization for three years, and have always been impressed by what amazing things our all-volunteer staff is able to accomplish. SustainUS has really put youth on the map for international policy making.

The Great!

SustainUS has written substantial policy that has informed international agreements, demonstrated that youth are experts in international development, and pushed for real change.

Funding is a major challenge for our organization. We would love to be able to support our delegations and citsci program, without having our representatives worry about funding.

I'm impressed with the membership's passion and dedication. This is an organization of committed, intelligent youth trying to make a brighter more sustainable future. The organization is 100% youth run, 100% volunteer based.

We have members all over the country, which is both a strength
and a weakness. At times, organization can be a challenge especially when we have to work around different schedules and time zones.

The Great!

We work with a very tight budget; more money would allow us to expand our programs and provide better scholarships to those with greater financial need.
