UNAGB's Summer Institute in Global Leadership offers week-long programs for teens between seventh and twelfth grade to engage in global issues, improve their public speaking skills, incorporate their knowledge of STEM topics to solve problems, and of course - make new friends! Each week focuses on a different topic (such as climate, human rights, etc.) Students hear from expert public speakers in the field, enhance their public speaking skills through team-building exercises, receive negotiation training from professional negotiators, and learn different perspectives each country has on the topic. The week ends with a full-day Model UN simulation where students role-play international leaders negotiating solutions to the problem.
A 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the United Nations Association of Greater Boston (UNAGB) has dedicated over 60 years to building a network of globally aware citizens in the Greater Boston area. With a core staff of 4 employees supported by a team of 7-10 college interns, we provide a high-quality global education program consisting of Model UN conferences, in-class curriculum and resources, and week-long summer institutes to more than 4,500 students and teachers per year. Using Model UN as a platform, UNAGB equips students with the skills to be global thinkers and local leaders. Program development is led by our education staff, comprised of experienced teachers, and entirely funded by local grants, donations, and program fees.
