The U.S. National Commission for UNESCO welcomes information about clubs, associations, and centers operating in the U.S. that have an interest in U.S. activities as a Member State of UNESCO or align themselves with UNESCO’s goal to:

“contribute to peace and security in the world by promoting collaboration among nations through Education, Science, Culture, and Communication in order to further universal respect for justice, for the rule of law and for the human rights and fundamental freedoms which are affirmed for the peoples of the world, without distinction of race, sex, language, or religion” (UNESCO Constitution, Article I)

The World Federation of UNESCO Clubs, Centers, and Associations (WFUCA) represents a network of over 3,800 UNESCO clubs in more than 80 nations worldwide. More information about UNESCO Clubs can be found on the UNESCO Club web page.

The Working Group for UNESCO Clubs, Centers, and Associations - an ad hoc group under the U.S. National Commission for UNESCO – works to coordinate UNESCO club, centers, and associations in the United States.

While this Working Group acts as a liaison with UNESCO groups in the U.S., recognition by the Working Group constitutes no official endorsement by the U.S. National Commission for UNESCO. UNESCO clubs, associations, and centers in the U.S. are not official U.S. government organizations; they and their members are responsible for their own activities.

The following clubs, associations, and centers have been brought to the attention of the U.S. National Commission as having a primary interest in the work of UNESCO.
