Workshop Skill Building Summer Program

Description

Founded over sixty years ago, UNAGB is committed to building understanding of and support for the work of the UN and its agencies. Dedicated to building a grassroots network of global citizens, they facilitate dialogue and offer innovative global educational programs in the community and classrooms in the Greater Boston area. Their programs include Model UN conferences and school-based programmes, as well as community events.

Model UN is a world-renowned program in which students role-play delegates representing member states of the United Nations. This is done through a simulation of UN committees and agencies, such as the Security Council or Human Rights Council debating current, relevant international topics. While participating in Model UN, students gain a multitude of 21st Century skills, that are not often practiced in a traditional classroom setting – public speaking, negotiation, and advanced critical thinking skills.

Engaging over 5,000 Bostonians annually, UNAGB strives to keep the community excited with a variety of programs geared to interest every member. From women’s issues to climate change, events with food or films, UNAGB wants to bring the work of the UN into the lives of as many community members as possible.
