United Nations Youth and Students Association of Bangladesh, more popular with its abbreviation UNYSAB is one of the largest volunteer hubs of the country that actively work for the development of interpersonal skills of the youth of Bangladesh.

UNYSAB is credited for organizing the first ever Model UN conference of the country, in 2002, and since then, we have organized about a dozen of MUN conferences in Bangladesh with a view to developing the research, communication and negotiation skills among the students and youth.

Moreover, UNYSAB is determined to create future leaders for the country.

Our Philosophy

We consider the Situational leadership model more applicable in terms of leadership development, which states,

Effective leadership is task-relevant, and the most successful leaders are those who adapt their leadership style to the Performance Readiness of the individual or group they are attempting to lead or influence.  

We believe that, effective leadership varies, not only with the person, but it also depends on the task or function that needs to be accomplished. To create leaders, we believe in facilitating new ideas from our members, assigning them with tasks and work for sustainable development.

And that is why, our motto is, “Leadership through volunteerism”.
