On April 24th and 25th, BUGS sent its first Model United Nations delegates to St. Ann's School in Brooklyn Heights. The kids sat in their committees for 2 days and went against some of the most seasoned Model UN veterans in NYC.Students solved current day, as well as historical crisis situations, such as the Ebola Virus all the way to the Greco-Persian War. We came away with one award from Merry Parasol who won honorable mention, and all the BUGS delegates had fun during this great learning experience!



















We are located at 500 19th Street, within the Bishop Ford Complex
Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn.
