2017 - 2018 Report Highlights

In the 2017-2018 academic year, over 1,000 middle and high school students were impacted, learned about, and discussed a variety of international issues through GCDC programing.

Over 95 volunteers, 112 educators, and 46 groups and schools participated in and supported the program coming from schools and groups in Washington DC, Virginia, Maryland, and Texas.

GCDC also held multiple conferences and events including a Fall Professional Development WorkshopFall Model UN Training Conference at the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), and Annual Spring Model UN Conference hosted at the U.S. Department of State and PAHO, where nearly 600 students, educators, parents, volunteers, and guests attended, and heard remarks from keynote speaker Munira Khalif, the US Youth Observer to the UN.

Global Classrooms DC Program Overview

The Global Classrooms DC (GCDC) program prepares urban public school students to be college-ready by graduation and better equips them for the demands of a globalized work force by participating in Model UN Conferences, workshops, and in-class simulations. Using Model United Nations (MUN) as a vehicle, students improve critical thinking and research skills, explore international issues, and engage in collective problem solving. 

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.
