“Have empathy, understand the other side, and let’s change the world.”

These were the closing words of Abhishek Malani, the 2017 Model UN President and senior at Glastonbury High School, to 1,000 assembled high school students at the end of our Model United Nations conference.

This is what our work is for. Together with you, our members, supporters and partners, we create global connections that help build a more empathetic, informed, and engaged community. Please consider making a special year-end contribution today to ensure critical global programming continues to thrive in our community.
