 NEW ORLEANS, LA
Encore Academy, a Title 1 Charter School in New Orleans, founded a Model United Nations Team. 15 dedicated students have been working tirelessly since the fall learning diplomatic procedures, engaging in debates on current events, and developing their voice of change.

We hope that in the Spring of 2017 our team will be able to attend the Global Classroom International Model United Nations Middle School Conference in New York City. While there, our passionate students will have the opportunity to hone their public speaking and debate skills as well as visit the United Nations Headquarters. In addition, our team will be able to meet over 1,500 students from around the world who share their desire to resolve real-world problems.

In the video, our team members explain why they chose to join Model United Nations. By donating to this GoFundMe, you are providing some of our most driven future leaders an unforgettable opportunity. Thank you for your support of Encore MUN!

Sincerely,

Molly Harris and Philip Dorn
Encore Model United Nations Advisors

Family, Friends, and Supporters,

We wanted to write a final message to let everyone know about our trip to New York! We cannot thank you all enough for making this experience possible.

We had an amazing time representing our country Chad at the Model U.N. Conference with students making speeches in front of their committees, working with kids from all over the world, and forming solution ideas to some of our most complex global problems. We went to the Broadway show “School of Rock,” reached the top of the Empire State Building, enjoyed a private tour of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, shopped in Time Square and sat in the seats of world leaders at the United Nations Headquarters. It truly was an unforgettable experience for all!

We put together a short video with some of our most memorable moments from the trip to express our appreciation! Enjoy!

Love,

Encore’s MUN Team

Molly, Philip, Rebecca, BenDette, Breshay, Demond, Effie, Logan, Destiny, Mychal-Mali, German, Spencer, Liyah, Jaelyn, Hayleigh, and Lydia

We had an amazing Model UN meeting today! Students engaged in their first game of "Freeze" where they discussed the UN's role in promoting gender equality in STEM fields throughout the world. Our team is incredibly excited about the upcoming Model UN conference. Listen as Destiny (8th grade) shares her reflections on the New York trip. Please continue to spread the word about Encore's Model UN team as we get closer and closer to our goal! Thank you to everyone for your support!!
