In 2016, NYLESA celebrated 5 years supporting UN Spouses in NYC!

NYLESA was created by UN spouses for UN spouses under the UN Dual Career & Staff Mobility Programme.
Now in our 6th year, our mandate continues to support spouses and partners of international UN staff members as they settle in and find career opportunities during their time in New York. In supporting spouses, NYLESA helps 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!

Our next open event is the NYLESA Coffee Gathering which will be on Wednesday, February 8th between 10am–12pm. Location: Nomad Restaurant (78 2nd Avenue)
