Establishing a campus chapter opens a lot of opportunities for students. Each chapter is customized following the schools’ activities and interests. Existing societies or clubs from within an educational institute can work with UNAP while conducting events and activities both inside and outside school. This allows the students and teachers to easily coordinate their activities in line with the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals. If the students work towards any of these goals within their respective schools’ while being selected as a UNAP-Youth member they will receive a certificate at the end of the year, along with the number of hours of work they did which is highly beneficial when applying for colleges, universities as well as jobs as UNAP gives students relevant hands on experience which is a prerequisite for the same.

Ideally, a Chapter Membership holds more value than an individual one. The reason chapters are integral is because they give the students a chance to work in a community with theit peers at their school, college or university. Involvement of the school is a support for UNAP and helps us set better targets and goals for each chapter. Chapter members tend to have more UNAP activities which they organize internally whereas individual members may only be able to participate in the activities and not be actively able to organize and volunteer for the same events such as UN International Day of Science, Plantation Drives, Space Camps and so on.
