WHO WE ARE

 

 

 

NYLESA is a strong community managed and functioned by volunteers

BRIEF HISTORY

The association was founded by UN spouses in May 2011 under the global UN Dual Career & Staff Mobility Programme

"It has also been a privilege to witness NYLESA members helping each other through the toughest of experiences. In addition to the obvious and significant challenges associated with settling into a new duty station, there have been more extreme experiences including Hurricane Sandy, bereavements, illnesses, marriage breakdowns, accidents and various other trials that have befallen us."
