In 2016, NYLESA celebrates 5 years supporting UN Spouses in NYC!
NYLESA was created by UN spouses for UN spouses under the UN Dual Career & Staff Mobility Programme.
Our mandate is to support the spouses and partners of international UN staff members to settle in and find career support during their time in New York. In supporting spouses, NYLESA enables the UN System to recruit and retain highly qualified professionals among its internationally mobile personnel. Supported spouses contribute to a strong, effective UN!
Join today and:
• Make new friends
• Get career support through workshops, seminars and networking opportunites
• Become involved with the UN community
• Discover NYC and gain useful tips for settling and enjoying your stay
• Make NYLESA stronger as it advocates for spouses' interests within the UN
Join us for an upcoming event and get to know this vibrant association!
