Are you a seventh grade teacher in an NYC public school? If not, do you know a seventh grade classroom in an NYC public school whose students would like to do their part to help solve some of the most pressing challenges in the world?
The United Nations needs NYC seventh graders to become global diplomats!
From now until October 5, seventh grade teachers across the City, from any subject-area, can apply on behalf of their students for the UN’s NYC Junior Ambassadors program.
Classes that are selected receive:
- A guided tour of the UN’s headquarters in Manhattan. During these tours, students will be briefed about the UN’s mission while learning how they can help make a difference, too;
- A classroom visit from a senior UN diplomat from a UN member country;
- Teaching tools that can be used to incorporate the UN’s mission into class lesssons;
- An opportunity to complete a year-end classroom project that will be exhibited during the annual NYC Junior Ambassadors Year-End ceremony at the UN;
- Professional development opportunities for teachers whose classes were selected for the program.
