Our Impact

For over 60 years, UNA-GB has brought insightful global affairs programs to Boston-area participants, now numbering over 5,000 annually.We organize more than two dozen community events each year, from luncheon presentations to networking nights to UN Day celebrations and an international gala with local diplomats and leaders.


Our Model UN Program serves thousands of Massachusetts youth each year. We reached more than 4,000 students in almost 100 schools in both inner-city Boston and surrounding districts in the 2013-2014 academic year.


We partner effectively with 
dozens of organizations and groups across diverse sectors in Bostonincluding local and national non-profits, NGOs, academic institutions, associations, companies and many more to work towards localizing the global ideals we all share.

Student Testimonials:

“Model UN has made me more comfortable with speaking and sharing my opinion with a group of unfamiliar people”---Middle school student

“I learned that there are different countries that have more power, which isn’t really fair because we are all equal, but that’s reality.”---Middle school student

“Model UN has made me take an interest in current events.”---Middle school student

“Model UN opened the door for politics in my life. I’m not sure that I want to be in the UN when I grow up, but I want to be involved in politics and world issues in general. Model UN helps open your eyes” –Middle school student

“What I enjoyed most about the Model UN conference is speaking to other kids about issues in the world that I did not fully understand before now.”

Teacher Testimonials:

“Preparing for the “real world” is the ultimate goal of education. Giving the students the opportunity to discuss and engage with real world issues not only prepares them to be active citizens but exposes them to valuable skills such as conflict resolutions, compromise, and debate”

“Preparing for the Model UN helped my students develop some really important academic skills, including using technology, breaking down issues into sub-topics, researching and writing about relevant current international issues and public speaking.”
