BENEFITING: UNA of Greater Boston
Invest in the Global Leaders of Tomorrow
On UN Day (Oct 24), Boston-area public school students will converge on the Massachusetts State House in honor of the 66th anniversary of the UN. These youth will be transformed from regular students into teen diplomats, tackling a critical issue in international development. Students representing diverse nations such as Afghanistan, Paraguay, and South Africa will participate in a Model UN simulation to debate solutions to gender inequality and answer this question:
Why do global inequalities for women in education and employment persist and what can be done about it?
Students develop leadership, public speaking and negotiation skills as they dive into international affairs, human rights and world culture and geography.
66 for 66 Campaign
Help us raise $3,300 to fund 66 students in honor of the 66th anniversary of the UN. Your support will allow us to continue to provide youth with FREE hands-on opportunities to gain critical 21st century skills around global engagement and advocacy.
