Editor’s Note: This post has been updated to reflect the City’s new deadline (October 22) for the NYC Junior Ambassadors program.
Are you a seventh grade teacher in a New York City public school?
Do you know a seventh grade class in an NYC public school whose students would like to do their part to help the United Nations (UN) solve some of the most pressing challenges in the world?
It is time to start identifying the City’s 2018–19 cohort of NYC Junior Ambassadors!
NYC Junior Ambassadors is an initiative that empowers the City’s seventh graders to learn and understand the UN’s mission of addressing international peace, sustainability, and the protection of human rights.
From now until October 22, seventh grade teachers from any subject area can apply for the NYC Junior Ambassadors program on behalf of their students.
Classes that are selected receive:
- A curated tour of the UN’s headquarters in Manhattan matched to each class’ curricular interests;
- A classroom visit from a senior UN diplomat from a UN member country;
- A special year-end celebration with the entire 2017–18 cohort of NYC Junior Ambassadors; and
- Completion certificates acknowledging participation in the program.
