Tips for Successfully Applying to the Youth Global Forum in Amsterdam


Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.” – Oscar Wilde

And who could be more unique than you? We not only welcome diversity but we celebrate it!

Your resume will speak more about yourself than an infinite amount of superlatives could ever do. Your qualifications and achievements will highlight themselves, instead try to focus your words on telling us about you; your ambitions, your goals and what motivates you.

If your application is denied for some reason, don’t think that you have come to the end of your road. Every year, for one reason or another, there are multiple successful applicants that aren’t able to attend.

When this happens, you could very well have the opportunity to fill the vacancy!
