Yale UNICEF is comprised of Yale students with a wide array of backgrounds, interests, and talents—all of whom are united by their love for children.


    ​Yale UNICEF is a member group of the United Nations International Children’s Fund Campus Initiative that aims to raise awareness about children’s issues—including poverty, development, safety, rights, health, education, and inclusion in their communities. Additionally, Yale UNICEF strives to contribute to efforts made on behalf of children both locally and internationally. Yale UNICEF hopes to inspire and empower members of the Yale community by providing them with both opportunities and tools to engage in student leadership, activism, and community service work on behalf of children worldwide.


    Yale UNICEF holds fundraising and advocacy events throughout the school year. Additionally, we have been expanding our involvement in the local New Haven community. While our events and programs vary every semester, below are some of our staples that you can look out for throughout the year!

    Arts for Healing


    A new connection with Yale-New Haven Children's Hospital, small groups of Yale UNICEF members volunteer in the Pediatric Emergency Waiting Room twice a month to provide arts and craft activities to patients and their families. This is our first community outreach program, started last year, that we hope to expand as more students get involved.

    Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF

    October/Early November

    Yale UNICEF continues the tradition of Trick-or-Treating for UNICEF (collecting change instead of candy) on campus in a variety of ways. From dorm trick-or-treating to hosting Halloween parties to collecting change from local stores, we love to get into the spirit of Halloween and raise money for UNICEF at the same time. 

    Tap Project


    Joining UNICEF's efforts to advocate for access to clean and safe water for all children, Yale UNICEF gets the word out about the Tap Project on campus. In more recent years, UNICEF has developed an app where for every 10 minutes you don't use your phone, a child is provided 1 day of clean water. Yale UNICEF has hosted "Anti-Study Breaks," during which we offer a quiet place for students to study during busy midterm season and not get distracted by their phones that are set aside to raise funds for UNICEF through the app.
