This fundraising page represents Newark School of Global Studies Model UN Club. Our school's goal is to provide students with an immersive academic experience to prepare them to be innovative thinkers in a competitive, global 21st century society. The Newark School of Global Studies is a place where a diverse student body will converge in a school with no borders. The curriculum fosters fluency in a second language, immersion in a foreign culture and the exchange of ideas via advanced technology. Students are engaged in a meaningful way in the sphere of international relations as they tackle the great global issues of our time within an academic framework. Our school's mission and vision perfectly coincide with the purposes of a Model United Nations club because we engage in conversations about global events and achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Our goal with this fundraiser is to grow and develop our school's very first Model UN club.
The students of our school are highly motivated and ready to showcase their talents. Unfortunately, our school and district are underfunded and cannot provide many of the funds necessary to help the children of Newark reach their dreams and compete on an international stage. While these opportunities may be afforded to students from more affluent districts, many of our students will never get a chance to experience traveling to a conference, competing against other schools, and proving just how truly talented they are.
By donating to this fundraiser you will be ensuring that money is not an obstacle for our inner-city students and that anyone regardless of socio-economic status can truly achieve their dreams.
The fundraising of this club will be going towards competitions such as Rutgers Model UN on November 17, and the National High School Model UN (NHSMUN) Competition in March.
