In Model UN Enrichment and After School, BUGS students take on the role of ambassadors and delegates of other countries. This year it was held at the Bronx High School for Science and the High School for Enterprise, Business and Technology. BUGS delegates take on a variety of issues such as the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, South China Sea dispute, Tackling Obesity, and the Refugee Crisis in Syria. Students examine these issues' affect on the international community, and the citizens of each of their respective nations. Model UN's goal is to foster an understanding of world events, and help delegates develop the critical thinking skills they need for college, career, and responsible citizenship. It is a popular BUGS activity and strongly aligned to BUGS's values of Community, Awareness, Reach, Exploration, Student Voice and Sustainability. 




















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