F.A.Q

General Questions
  1. I’d like to attend the Teen General Assembly! How can I register?
    Application for The Teen General Assembly is currently open. There are two ways to participate; you may choose to sign up for either:
    • Individual Delegate: The Assembly (the 3rd Session of The Teen General Assembly); or
    • Group Delegate: Have your school/organisation/group share a list of delegates with hello@teenassembly.net and proceed to help the individuals register through Assembly

    The process for either option involves three phases: Application → Registration → Final Admission

  2. I’m 20 but I still consider myself young. Why can’t I apply as a “Teen General Assembly Delegate”?
     

    At Teen General Assembly, we do not have a strict definition of youth, but have defined a certain age range for who is considered a “Delegate” for our program planning purposes. Applicants 20 or older should apply as an observer to attend Teen General Assembly.

  3. How are the applications evaluated?
     

    The Applicant Questionnaire in the form will be used to evaluate your application. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis and will be evaluated based on the applicant’s student history, work or involvement, achievements, and interest in sustainable development and the African Nations.

  4. Do I need to register for The Teen General Assembly first before making payment?
     

    Yes, only registered and approved applications will be due for any other procedures or payments.

  5. What happens after I have submitted an application form?
     

    You will receive an auto-response email shortly after you have submitted the form. This email will contain a copy of your submitted application form. Please note that submission of an application form does not automatically guarantee acceptance to The Teen General Assembly. Your application will be reviewed and evaluated thoroughly based on eligibility. You will receive an email regarding the status of your application (accepted, pending, rejected) on or before March 1, 2019. If your application has been accepted, you will be instructed to proceed with your registration.

  6. I want to attend, but I am unable to afford the administration fee and other costs.
     

    We suggest applicants to check local organizations and associations, for sponsorship opportunities. Former delegates have found that a search through the internet, academic scholarships, and local and national sources can also be a source of subsidy and support.

    You can also utilize our fundraising guide, which provides suggestions to help with self-funding efforts.

  7. Do you provide interpretation services during the event
     

    All events at The Teen General Assembly are carried out in English and Interpretation services (including sign languages) may be arranged with an external agency. For inquiries, please email hello@teenassembly.net .

  8. Are the event facilities wheelchair accessible?
     

    Yes, all event facilities are wheelchair accessible. However, we suggest the participant to bring a caregiver/companion with him/her throughout the event.

  9. What happens if I am not able to finalize the registration?
     

    Unfortunately, failure to complete the payment by the indicated deadline will result to your application and registration being withdrawn. If you need more time, you may request for extension. However, extension requests will only be approved on a case-to-case basis and with possible increased/late fee.

  10. I want to bring a group delegation to the event. What do I need to know?
     

    Groups are considered to be 10 people or more. Please email list of delegates to hello@teenassembly.net

    Once the group information form has been received, the group leader will receive the group members application link within three days. The group leader will be responsible for ensuring that the group members receive the group member application link and submit their applications by the indicated deadline.

    Decisions on the group member applications will be sent to the group leader on or before March 1, 2019. The group is responsible for paying the fees by the payment deadline for each group member that is accepted to attend the Teen General Assembly.

    Never has there been such weighty responsibility on the shoulders of young people. Never has there been the influence in the hands of young people like the influence they carry now. But for Africa to reap the dividends she has longed for, it is up to our generation to make sure that influence is channelled correctly and directed towards relevant issues that affect not only ourselves but generations after us. This can only be achieved if we come together as young people and begin to address the challenges before us as a continent.
