My Migration Story - (UN World Youth Report)

24jan-migrationyouthAre you a young migrant/immigrant in a destination country or a returnee in your country of origin?  Are you a documented or undocumented young migrant? We would like you to share your personal written story with us. The 2013 World Youth Report will be written through the lens of the various stages of migration (i.e. pre-departure, in-transit, arrival, post-arrival and return/no-return).

That's where we want to hear from you! Share with  us your story and it could be chosen as a key story for the Report. Not sure how to tell us? You can:

  • Write an account of your story in a poem (200 words or fewer)
  • Write an article (800 words or fewer)

Where needed, we will ensure confidentiality for young people who would not like their full names and details to be disclosed in the Report for one reason or the other.

Please send us your migration Stories with the subject line UN World Youth Report – My Migration Story by 1 March 2013 to
