About Global Classrooms DC

Established in 2003, Global Classrooms® DC (GCDC) is the flagship education program of the United Nations Association of the National Capital Area (UNA-NCA). GCDC is a Model UN program that introduces students in grades 5-12 to the work of the United Nations and international issues. Through original global education curriculum, Model UN mini-simulations, and annual Model UN Conference opportunities, GCDC helps to equip globally aware citizens by strengthening key skills including public speaking, negotiation, research, analysis, and writing.

The GCDC team creates original curriculum resources for the topics discussed at GCDC’s Fall and Spring Model UN conferences and as prep for realistic simulated discussions in their classroom; works with educators to support implementation of programming into their classes and extracurricular clubs; and pairs groups upon request with Model UN Mentors and individuals from UNA-NCA's speakers bureau who can help with conference preparation and can serve as an example of how Model UN can help students after high school graduation.
